Butterfly Blog Linky Party


Sweet and talented Eva Dobilas is hosting a Butterfly blog linky party, and everyone is invited to participate. All you have to do is make a project with butterflies on it, and link it on her blog. I love butterflies and spring, so I'm thrilled to join her party.

Here's what I made:

I purchased some fabulous Creatables Dies from Marianne Design and thought this large scalloped circle with flourishes would be a perfect starting point. I used Making Memories' Je t'Adore patterned paper for my base, and framed the Verve sentiment, "A Cheerful friend is like a sunny day spreading brightness all around"~ John Lubcock, from the set Text Objects. I framed it with the Labels 14 Nestabilities die by Spellbinders. Now the whole point of this project is to include butterflies, so I punched out this gorgeous Martha Stewart butterfly and added some glitter with my Quickie Glue pen.

Here's a close up: (click on the photo for a closer look at the sparkle)


All the edges were ink distressed with Antique Linen Ranger distress ink, and I added some Kaisercraft pearls to the border..

That's it for my project. Be sure to stop by Eva's Blog "For the Love of Life", either to join the hop, or to see everyone's butterflies!

Thanks so much for dropping by. I hope you're having a blessed weekend!!
Happy Stamping!
Tosh
