Love is Like a Butterfly

I made this card for Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge 'P is for Paper Piercing and/or the colour Fern' and I decided to choose both options.  I'm also entering Cardz 4 Gals 'Love is in the Air', A Gem of a Challenge 'Add a Butterfly', International Art & Soul 'Love is in the Air' and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.

Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk
Sentiment: Kanban 'Butterfly Meadow'
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Standard Circles Large' and 'Classic Scalloped Circles Large', Tattered Lace 'Mini Butterflies'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Card: Lilac pearlescent
Paper: Making Cards 'Cocktail Time' (magazine freebie)
Other: Paper piercing tool and mat, Wink of Stella

I trimmed the paper to a square, layered it onto lilac card and attached it to the card front.  I die cut and embossed the sentiment topper, layered it onto a scalloped die cut and embossed circle before attaching it to the centre of the card.  I die cut two mini butterflies, pierced them down the centre and attached them to the topper.  To finish I outlined the sentiment with a Wink of Stella.

Great idea to use the paper piercing down the centre of the butterfies. Like your thinking. Love the fern design paper which is just perfect. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge. Hugs Mrs A.
