It is time for a new challenge at Joan's Gardens. This week the theme is butterflies. You should go over to Joan's Gardens to read all the requirement for the challenge and see what the prize is for this week. Remember everyone who is chosen in the Weekly Challenges, will be eligible for the $100 Gift Certificate to Joan's Gardens at the end of the year. Everyone has an equal chance because the winner is chosen from a random drawing.
I used a piece of design paper from the new BoBunny "Country Garden Collection" paper pad for my background. Down in the right hand corner I added some of my vellum flowers over the flowers in the design paper. Ranger's "Bisque" Liquid Pearls were added to the center of each flower. I used the new Spellbinders "Lattice Motifs" (S5-107) and "Lattice Accents" (S5-106) for the doily and border. I die cut them using white card stock then used the Tim Holtz Blending Tool to add "Antique Linen" Distress Ink. The large butterfly was created with the Memory Box "Vivienne Butterfly" (98265). The butterfly layered under it is the Memory Box "Darla Butterfly" (98264). The Darla Butterfly was die cut using a piece of design paper from the BoBunny "Forever Fall Collection" paper pad. The two small butterflies are from the Cheery Lynn "Mini Butterflies" (DL112) set. The bottom of it is the Cheery Lynn "Mini Angel Wing" (DL112A). I love working with the butterflies that have the "Angel Wings" because you can use so many different design papers or colors of card stock to add color to them. I added a thin line of glue around the edge of the top butterfly and attached it to the Angel Wing.
