Well for this challenge I just had to use butterflies didn’t I? I used this gorgeous image called Flowerlicious by Stitchy Stamps adding a second layer for the flutterby soit’s wings could flap of course J  I coloured the image with Promarkers & Flexmarkers adding some glossy accents and a gem to the poppy centre and lots of stickles glitter glue to the butterfly. I die cut the image with a Nestabilities die and distressed the edges with an inkpad.

The backing paper is from DCWV Mariposa stack. I adore black and red and this is one of the prettiest papers with the swirls on it. The gorgeous lace trim has roses woven in it and is by Prima.

The sentiment is a freebie from Vibgyor Krafts and has been die cut with a Quickutz Cookie Cutter Die.
