There's a new challenge out there that is all about our favorite insect--the butterfly. The very first challenge at the Butterfly Challenge blog is called Butterflies and Flowers. You have to use at least one of each on your project.
I wanted to make something bright, fresh and spring-like and this background paper immediately sprung to mind. Of course, I had to dig the Valentine stash back out to get at it but I think it was worth it.
After all the delicate frills on the paper and die cuts I felt my butterfly should be fairly solid, so I used this one, which was my very first butterfly die ever. I thought he looked a little naked so I gave him a jeweled head. Then I decided that made his body look off so I jeweled that up too. Now I'm not so sure it isn't excessive, but hey, I'm known for that.
