Dainty Butterfly


I was going through my butterfly dies and this one popped out at me.  I love how dainty it looks.  I thought it would look so pretty on some new Spellbinder dies and a new embossing folder from Joan's Gardens.  The butterfly is the Cheery Lynn Small Lace Faerie Queen butterfly.  It comes with an "angel" wing but I chose not to use it this time.  The Spellbinder dies are the "Marvelous Squares" Nestabilities.  Have you seen these new Spellbinder dies?  You can Mix-n-Match to Create 20+ Designs with this one set of dies.  


Spellbinders "Marvelous Squares"

The pretty embossed background is one of the new Sizzix embossing folders in the "Floral Vines Set".  Both the folders in this set are so pretty and will work really well for a background for all the flowers we love to create.  The flowers were created with the Cheery Lynn "Build A Flower #2" dies.  Behind the flower I cut apart one of the Cheery Lynn "Mini Fanciful Flourishes"; There are also some of the Martha Stewart "branch" punched pieces.  To complete the card I added pink Kaiser Craft pearls.

All the products used on this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.  If I use something she does not have on her blog yet, just give her the name and number of the product, which are listed below:

Cheery Lynn Mini Fanciful Flourish (B117S)
Cheery Lynn Small Lace Faerie Queen w/Angel Wing (DL161)
Cheery Lynn Build A Flower #2
Spellbinders Marvelous Squares (S4-383)
