Cheery Lynn Designs Butterflies

Today is the last day of the Cheery Lynn Designs Butterfly Challenge.  Please join in on the fun for a chance to win a $50 or $25 shopping spree to Cheery Lynn Designs.  For my card I decided to give you some more inspiration to use those butterflies!


Using this great paper from the SEI Corrine 6x6 paper pack as my inspiration, I die cut Ribbon Eyelet Border with piercing adding a striped piece of paper from the same collection as the ribbon.  Next I die cut Fanciful Flourish and the Sunflower die.  I trimmed the top off the flourish, added the flower then added the top of the flourish to extend above the flower.  I bent up the petals on the top layer of the sunflower for dimension.  Next came the adorable butterflies, these are the Mini Exotic Butterfly set.  I die each one out of red and yellow card stock and then layered them, again bending them up for dimension on the card.  The last step was to add some Light Green Viva Decor Pearl pen accents.  Finished size is 6" square.
