Butterflies, Flowers and Lollipops
Hello All! I had great fun making this card today. It is for two challenges:
1. Stampin' B's (use a butterfly, a flower, and a die cut)
2. Crazy 4 Challenges (use lollipops -- no particular way specified)
My butterfly digi comes from GTC's Crafty Corner. It actually had a flower on the left upper wing but I wanted to use these 3D flowers that I found at Michael's a while back. I colored the butterflly with colored pencils, shaded with baby oil. I coated the head, body and outer wings with SU Crystal Effects to tie in with the flowers. I used Scalloped Circle Nestabilities to cut the Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery SU card stock. The card base is SU Creamy Caramel and the speckled brown paper is misc. 12x12. The ribbon for the bow also comes from Michael's and those are lollipops on it! I would have sworn that they were ornaments but the roll specifically says Multi Lollipops! Cross my heart! Hope you enjoyed my cute little card as much as I enjoyed making it!!
