BBTB2/Butterfly

Lori, the oh so talented Lori, is our hostess for this week's BBTB2 challenge. Lori selected the Once Upon a Dream cartridge and we were to design using the butterfly cut. I don't have that cartridge, but we can select a butterfly from any cartridge that we do have. I love love love the butterfly on Indie Art. I actually bought this cartridge just for the ice cream cone and butterfly die cuts...... Here is my card.

Recipe: Cricut Cartridge Indie Art - Butterfly
Opposites Attract - LOVE
Scalloped Circle Mount - Nestabilities
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots
I cut the Indie Art butterfly in four sizes, distressed the edges, embossed the 4 cuts and layered them. Topped it off with a pink heart jewel.
Hopefully you have come to my blog by way of the BBTB2 blog where all the designers have showcased their most wonderful talents. You can see those right here.

I love the layered look of the butterfly -- just stunning. I hope to be able to start making cards before long. At this point I can't sit for very long at a time with my legs down.
