Are You a Butterfly Lover?


If not....then look away.....you're about to see lots of butterfly "eye candy"! *giggle*

I made these cards and "Candy" (accents) for a SplitCoast Swap I am in.
My friend Linda is the host of this great swap. I hope she likes my creations :)

 Here are my black and white cards. I used a Swirl Cuttlebug folder on the black card stock, added some white satin flower trim and some 10mm silver brads. I love black and white cards and really like how mine turned out. Oh, and the sentiment.....well, I thought since it was black and white that it could be used for a wedding/anniversary card. What do you think?
And here is the butterfly "candy" I created. Instead of sending 6 to 8 of the same pieces in a bag (We had to create 6 bags of 6 or more butterflies), I gave a variety! The larger butterflies and light blue one are cut with the Indie Art Cricut Cart. The 3 smaller ones are punched with the SU! butterfly punch. Then I sent 2 stamped images along. I like variety! :)

Now, I can't wait to see what I get back! Yea!

Until next time...
Blessings...
