Crafting Musketeers February Challenge: Butterflies

Hello Crafteteers!

A new month and a fun new challenge at Crafting Musketeers: Butterflies!  I think this may be a tough challenge for paper crafters like using butterflies?  ;)
Spellbinders die set Arched Windows One cut the lovely patterned paper from My Mind's Eye pad Follow Your Heart "Be Amazing".  Distress ink was applied and a gold leafing pen was used along the out and inside edges as shown.  Spellbinders die set Tapestry was embossed on plain white paper and Distress Inks were applied as shown.  Shimmer mist was also applied to the embossed paper. The Spellbinders butterflies dies Les Papillions Two provided the pretty butterflies.

I look forward to seeing all of the beautiful butterfly projects this month at Crafting Musketeers!  What a wonderful way for us to start to thinking of spring!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
