Stampin'B's Challenge #43

Faith wanted us to include a butterfly, a flower, and a die-cut in our card this week. I may have gone a little overboard – I have a butterfly, three flowers and four die-cuts. Actually, there are two butterflies because the punched-out one is covering a stamped one.

I love the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis shapabilities – so much that I used it twice. The image, from Mark’s Finest Papers Presents: Serenity Collection, was stamped and then cut out using a circle nestie, matted in black. The punched-out butterfly looked a little plain, so I added a couple of small pearls. I had originally used a punch to create the flowers but I didn’t like the way it looked, so I used the Primas instead. As you can see, I used Joanne’s (jojot) favorite color combination.

Stamp (main image), cardstock, and Spellbinders are all available at Mark's Finest Papers.
