Sweet Butterflies......

Morning all, Hope you are all well & happy.

Today's card is a simple one. I used the colour cloud blending ink to make a marble-ly effect background paper. Then i cut out two pieces of pink mirri card using the Spellbinders die "Graceful Lattice". The first piece I extended once so that it was square. The second piece I cut the exact size as the die, which i have used to frame the butterfly topper. (Hunkydory little book of butterflies). I slotted the topper inside of the outer edge of the die cut piece to hold in place. (just noticed i have missed one piece at the top side of the topper - doh!!).
This i then have stuck on at a "jaunty angle - as they say on TV!!".

Then using another identical butterfly topper i have cut three of the butterflies out. The largest i decoupage over the main topper piece. The other two i have stuck onto the lattice and below. Using the Dovecraft 3d pearl glue i have put dots onto the lattice piece & the butterfly in purple, and pink onto the butterfly. 

I hope you can see the colours ok - i find it difficult to photo pale colours....they never seem to be bright enough. 

I'm in the process of knitting the last of the Christmas cushions (a set of 4). Hopefully will be able to show you this week. Have a good day. x
