Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge

It is time for a new challenge at Joan's Gardens.   The theme this week is "All About Butterflies".  Please go over to Joan's Gardens to see all the challenge rules and to see what the prize is for this week.

For my card I used a piece of design paper from the Memory Box "Viola" 6x6 pad.  The pretty butterflies are the Memory Box Kaleidoscope and Moonlight Butterflies.  The Kaleidoscope butterflies were die cut using white card stock and were layered over the Moonlight butterflies which were die cut using vellum.  The pretty piece on the bottom of the card is the new "Anja's Vintage Decoration".    I used a new spray adhesive you can get from Joan's Gardens called "E6000 Spray Adhesive".  Wow, what an easy way to attach any detailed die cut.  You just spray it on the back and there is no odor.  This spray is much easier than using glue and gives you complete coverage so little pieces of your die cuts are not pulling away from your card.  The border around the card was punched with the Martha Stewart "Monarch Butterfly Wing Edger".  To complete the card I added Kaiser Craft Clear Rhinestone to the body of the butterflies, over the Vintage Decoration, and on each corner.  

I hope you will join us in our challenge this week.

All the products I use can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.

I love the use of the vellum on these butterflies! Lovely card... And thanks for the info about the E6000 spray. I saw some the other day and wondered what it would be useful for.
I'm not sure why but my Xyron doesn't always do what it should. This may be the answer!
