Butterflies in Flight

Hello my friends!
How excited am I to share a creation with you today
that was designed for the Crafting By Design Challenge Blog!
Back in April, I was chosen as a Spotlight Winner
and was asked to be a guest designer for June ... what an honor!
Thanks so much Doris!


The theme for this weeks challenge is:

THINGS WITH WINGS

and the sponsor is:

Prize - $10 gift certificate to store

Here's what I have created . . .


Yep ... some of you may have guessed,
I am playing with my Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks again to create my background panel and my butterfly spray.  I used various colors for the background panel but only the Broken China and Wilted Violet for the panel I die cut this beautiful Memory Box 'Fairyland Butterflies' die.

To create a 'backdrop' for my butterflies, I used the Memory Box 'Cross Stitched Frame Borders' die set.  I used various sizes to create these two panels then popped up the outside panel with dimensional tape.


A couple drops of Nuvo White Crystal Drops were added to the body of the butterflies to add more dimension.  The sentiment I have used today is from a very old Stampin' Up set (circa 2006) called Song Birds.  A few coordinating sequins and my card is ready to send.

Here's a peek at the inside:
