Another Stitched Butterfly

 I began the month with this set of butterfly dies and I wanted to have another play with them again.

supplies: white and black cardstock, orange and green patterned paper, Spellbinders Stitched Glimmer Butterflies, a gold/orange variegated embroidery floss, Mini Blooms and Sprigs (tiny leaves), Petite Floral Potpourri (tiny posies), sentiment from Simon Joys of Spring, spiced marmalade oxide ink, pearls

I think I had mentioned in an earlier post that I inherited a nice selection of embroidery floss from my Mom; among them are several skeins of variegated flosses, which I have never used before.  So I chose this bright sunny one and stitched the butterfly wings, then built the rest of the card around it, adding some tiny flowers.  Here's a closer look at the butterfly only.  This shows you the shades of floss, and the teensy flowers.

And this color is a nice lead-in to the coming summer months!  Thanks for your visit today!
