Floral Butterfly

Pulling another die that has hardly seen the light.

supplies: white, 3 shades of pink, pink glitter, and Audrey Blue cardstock, dp from Memory Box Cottage Meadow collection, Spellbinders February 2019 Large Die of the Month, Avery Elle Loads of Wishes sentiment, a Doodlebug sprinkle

As I was looking at Simon's June Card Kit with all its butterflies, I was thinking that I haven't done a card featuring butterflies in a long time, and this lovely 4-layer one sprung to mind.  I hadn't made it in pink yet, so that's where I started.  I cut 3 layers from  3 shades of pink, and the top layer from glittered pink and glued them together only in the center, so that the layers can be pulled upwards for texture.  And then I went looking for a patterned paper to put behind it.  I love it with this Memory Box paper with the floral spray in the corner!  I then added a white flower (from the same die set) to the butterfly to pull everything together, and embossed my sentiment in white. 

Hope this makes you smile - thanks for dropping by!  I hope to see you again tomorrow for my stop on a Simon Crafty Hugs blog hop!
