Butterfly Challenge 79

There is a new challenge for the month over on the Butterfly Blog and they are asking for 'Layers and/or Cream'.  It so happened that I was playing around with ideas this morning for using some cream pearl and coppery pearl card with embossing folders  so when I spotted this theme I immediately decided that I'd add a butterfly into the mix.  I used two different embossing folders one of which was a magazine freebie and also some dies which happen to match the shape in the centre.  I just needed to die cut and emboss a butterfly, add a sentiment and that's it - seven layers!  Do pop over to take a look at the ideas for butterflies and layers - some lovely inspiration as always.

Embossing Folders - base layer Creative Expressions (I think)
Cream Square - free embossing folder with a magazine
Shaped square layers - Crafter's Companion dies
Butterfly - Spellbinders die and tiny punched one using X-cut punch
Sentiment - printed on computer punched with Stampin' Up punches
Card - Centura Pearl from Crafter's Companion


  1. Pretty butterfly card and like your two embossing folders you've used Val
