A Butterfly for Mom


I love butterflies and so when I found this butterfly cut on the Sentimentals Cricut cartridge I had to have it. Isn't it gorgeous? I love that it can be plain too. I played along again over at the Shabby Tea Room and this week's challenge was to use squares. So I chose a card cut also off the Sentimentals cart that was squarish, (cut at 5") and used my Nesties to cut the patterned paper squares my butterfly is mounted on. I then stiched each square to my base paper with my sewing machine. The top layer of the butterfly wings was embossed with my Damask Cuttlebug folder and to finish it I added some Prima bitty roses, pearls and distress ink. I hope you are having a wonderful day and don't forget to be thankful for something! Hugs...
