Butterflies in Flight

Hello Dies R Us friends!
Darlene with you today and it appears I'm in a 'butterfly' mood this week!  This is my second card this week and it just dawned on me that they both had butterflies!  Oops!  LOL!!

I guess now that winter has hit ... I'm ready for spring!  


Dies used today from the Dies R Us Store are:

What I did to create this card was to first die cut the Fairyland Butterflies from a heavier (110#) card stock and use that cut as my stencil.  Using various Tim Holtz distress blue inks, I created my 'ombre' background.  Then overlaid my butterfly panel just a little off center to create a shadow affect.

From earlier creations I had the center cuts from the CLD Celtic Fire Rectangle Frame which I cut in half and adhered as yet another 'layer'.  The hearts were also laying on my work table from a previous creation and I thought I still needed a little 'something' and they worked perfectly!  A little faux stitching and VIOLA!

OH!  One more thing ...

By coloring a scrap piece of white card stock with the same
colors as the front of my card and die cutting the lovely
Wild Rose Studio 'Birthday' die,
NOW my card is totally complete and beautiful inside & out!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and don't forget to come join in the fun challenges at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.
YOU could be our next prize winner!! 

Till next time . . .
