Timeless Tuesday #109-Butterflies!


It's time for another Timeless Tuesday challenge from Flourishes, and today Silke Ledlow is our hostess and she is challenging everyone to add butterflies to their creations! In the paper crafting world, I think there are literally thousands of options for adding butterflies... embellishments, die-cuts, papers, stamped images... you could find them anywhere! So have some fun with this one, and link up your creation over at the Flourishes blog! You could be the winner of a $10 gift certificate to spend in the Flourishes online store! Check out the blog for all the details and how to enter!

For my card, I took some inspiration from the Mojo Monday sketch this week, and this new Gabrielle paper I got recently from Bo Bunny, which has butterflies! I also added a die-cut butterfly made from a Die-Namics die, and some Zva bling from the Flourishes store! My sentiment comes from the Hello Hyacinth stamp set.
For more butterfly inspiration, stop and see what the other Flourishes Bloggers have created today...

I love this card! I'm not sure what I like so much; it's not something I can put my finger on. I think it might be the overall distressed look. Anyway, you did a fabulous job on it.
