3D Butterflies

Hi everyone, 

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know! 

The card I'm sharing with you today is the one I created during an Ask Me Anything live in my Facebook group last Wednesday.  The question was about 3D butterflies, and this Groovi plate from Tina Cox was perfect to demonstrate two versions of them... the outer ones have their wings snipped out of the parchment and the central one is entirely cut out of a snippet of parchment which I then attached with a glue dot...


Card: Unbranded white, Clarity's clear parchment and Designer Paper
Groovi Plates: Tina's Forget Me Not & Butterflies Floral Delight
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing, perforating and cutting tools, Perga color pens, and pearls from my stash

Challenges...
