Butterflies Collage



The challenge at the Double D's Blog Challenge is to use butterflies in our design. So that was a good excuse for me to make use of the Memory Box Reverse Butterfly Collage and some background paper I had previously made using alcohol inks.


The sentiments and card stock are all from Gina K. Designs except for the alcohol ink background. I had an assortment of different shaped gems that I had in my stash for years and so I decided to add them to the butterflies for their bodies.


To finish the card I added a piece of white card stock inside to which I could stamp another sentiment or write a note. I am so happy with the way this all came together too.

The inspiration photo has so many wonderful options and ideas  but I chose to use the purple and blue butterflies this time. Who knows! I love butterflies and might just have to work another one in for the challenge too.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for all the lovely comments.

God bless,
Verna
