Paper butterfly flowers card

Well, I’m not sure why I thought I would find more time to craft once the kids went back to school!?  Anyway, I squeezed in one of the many challenges I wanted to do this week – 2S4Y.  The sketch fit in perfectly for the card I made for my manager whose father died last week.  I used the Stampin Up butterfly punch to make four butterflies.  Then I layed them out on paper towels and got them very wet with a spray bottle.  Then I used blue and orange ink with a waterpen to get the effect.  After letting them dry I curled the edges and overlapped them.  Then I put a brad through the center and added some silver Stickles in the center.  Then attached it to the card with dimensionals.  I learned this from my oh so crafty Stampin Up demonstrator and friend, Carol Fothergil.  I used a Cricut cut from the Storybook cart and ran it through a cuttlebug folder (I had to modify the cut a little to get the shape to line up the way I wanted  in the folder!) .  I also added some Crystal Stickles to the corners of the card on the embossing.  The saying is a Stampin Up stamp on one of their punches, then layered on another punch from Fiskers that I inked around the edges.  I used Bazzill Bling cardstock.

Thanks for your kind comments and feedback!
