Butterflies and Furry Friend

The current challenge at Little Claire Designs is 'Butterflies' and I've used one of their 'Cute Bears' Irresistible Images for my card.  I'm also entering the Alphabet Challenge 'F for Furry Friends' and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge where 'Anything Goes.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Image: Little Claire Designs 'Cute Bears' Irresistible Images
Die: Tattered Lace 'Mini Butterfly'
Card: Purple Core'dinations (magazine freebie)
Paper: Purple and yellow butterfly (magazine freebie)

The image already had a small butterfly on it, but I found a piece of butterfly paper which matched the colours perfectly.  To make this quick card I layered a square of butterfly paper onto purple card and attached it to the card blank.  The image was layered onto purple card and attached to the centre.  I die cut a purple butterfly, curled the wings and attached it to the top of the image.
