For Anne

Anne is having a challenge over on her blog, to make something using butterfies and/or spring. Spring means pastel flowers to me, so that's where this started, and then I thought this sentiment would make a good butterfly trail. Most papers are dotted cardstocks. I added lots of little bling in the flower centers, on the butterfly body, and along its trail. The butterfly and the yellow flower are pop-dotted.

Supplies: CG148 Blossoms, CL383 Antique Engravings, CL278 Great Flourishes, BoBunny cardstock in pink, yellow, blue and green, VersaFine onyx black ink, clear embossing powder, colored pencils for highlighting, little gems

  5. That is a perfect butterfly trail Lin!! Great idea...I have that set too but don't play with it much since I couldn't figure out how to make it look good on a card, but what you've done looks superb! Wonderful inspiration!
