Butterflies...a sign of spring!

April's ATC challenge at Cropstop is to create an ATC showing movement. Since butterflies happen to be a favorite of mine, it was an obviouse choice for this topic!

I used my CB Butterflies die and embossing set to make my butterfly. The underwing are cut and embossed on vellum. The upper wing is cut and embossed on BG Euphoria with a different embossing folder. The body of the butterfly was embossed and cut from SEI suede paper. I used the new EK Swiss Cheese punch and added some Stickle and Dew Drops.



Here are a couple of cards that I made using butterflies as embellishments. The top card was for a CC challenge. I made the butterfly using transparency, stamp, and Stazon. The bottom card has a buttfly made from a 5 petal flower. I just removed one of the petals and replaced it with wire for the antennae!

The butterflies are just beautiful Vicki, you have done a wonderful job with these cards. That top butterfly is GORGEOUS! Those colours and using the transparency is amazingly beautiful.
How are things going? Are you feeling OK now?
