#515/516 Butterflies, blossoms and bugs at Allsorts challenge

Our theme this week at Allsorts has been chosen by Brenda. She'd like to see Butterflies, blossoms and bugs.

It's not often I make cards with butterflies - although it seems I have plenty of dies of them lol!

I decided to get them all out and also the butterfly and ladybird dies and see what I could come up with. The background is a sheet of CC metallic printed butterfly paper, which I inked the edges with a CC inkpad. Then I cut a frame and added that to hide the ink line.

The butterflies are by tonic and one by Tattered lace. I cut the large one a few times to inlay the pieces. The other two I used some vellum to the back and added it also to the butterfly wings and the chloe stem die.

Our challenge will run for two weeks this time. The winner (chosen by random generator) will receive a £15 voucher for The Paperbox Limited.
