Butterfly Frenzy

Happy Thursday to You!!
Diane here with you today to share a bit of 
"Butterfly Frenzy".

I have been making lots of detailed cards lately
and decided to do a more "simpler" card.
I have a great addiction to all the butterfly dies
Dies R Us carries and I think it has become my goal 
to own them all..LOL!


This card was simply made with a scrap of designer paper
and a narrow embossing folder down each side.
Now the fun part, the butterflies!!

I used two PoppyStamp dies for these,
One fits exactly over the other for a 3D effect like I did,
or you can opt to glue them down as one piece.

I used Origami papers for the Murana Butterfly
and just plain card stocks for the Samirah Butterfly,
just gluing the centers, then adding a gem to cover the glue!

I encourage you to head on over and peek at all the dies
in store...if you see an item "Out of Stock", you will also see
a place that says "put me on the waiting" list, just click on that
and submit...it's that easy!!


Don't forget to see what the rest of the Design Team has for you
every Monday through Friday...
and of course our weekly challenge at the Dies R Us Challenge blog
where you could win a gift voucher, just for joining in!!

Oh, how pretty, Diane! I love the relative simplicity. The papers are very fresh and sweet, and the butterfly colors are just perfectly coordinated. A butterfly die collection would be a lot of fun! Yup, I think you should work on that.
