Vintage Butterflies

Good Morning All!
Another snowy, treacherous day in Ohio yesterday but it's supposed to warm back up today!
Terrible 30-50 car pile ups on the Ohio Turnpike!  OMG ... come on Spring!!
Anyways, today I'd like to share a card I made for the current Joan's Touch Challenge #4.

The requirements are:
  • Use a circle ... perhaps a round doily
  • Colors - Peach and Teal
  • Use Butterflies and layer them
  • Use a product sold at Joan's Gardens

 I love, love, love Graphic45 design papers and here are a couple of my favorites ... Secret Garden and A Lady's Diary.    The image and tag are coordinating chipboard pieces that I've had since this design was released but have never used any of them ... UNTIL TODAY!!

The doily is a Wilton paper doily and the butterfly punch is Martha Stewart.  I like that Joan required you to 'layer' your butterflies!  I never think to do that and they look SO COOL!!!

I have also used the  Graphic45 Secret Garden Patterns & Solids paper pack for my butterflies.  Punched 3 times with a sheet of double sided 6x6 paper and reversed the center panel for more fun look.  A few mini Kaiser pearls (paper & pearls from Joan's Gardens) down the center give the butterflies a more 'finished' look also.

I'd like to share my card with the following challenges:
Butterfly Challenge #3 - Stitching (real or faux) and Butterfly
Hobbybook Designer Challenge #1 - Make it Girlie
Digi Choosday Challenge - All about the Girls
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #186 - Stitching

Hope the weather is BEAUTIFUL where you are today!
It's goes from the teens to the 60ths through out the week here in Ohio, USA!  CRAZY!!
