A FLURRY OF BUTTERFLIES

Hello and welcome....

 This is a quick way to add to your 'go to' card collection, especially when you need a card in a hurry!

The white base card is 5"x7" and I cut a smaller white panel for the top piece 

I die cut the butterfly on all 4 pieces of card

For the pink background I used another piece of the marble effect card I made a few days ago and on the sentiment stamp I used two coloured inks on the stamp

On the blue/green image I coloured a piece of white card with 3 distress oxide inks, die cut the sentiment and added the remainder of the card behind the butterfly silhouette then added white dots onto it
For the card on the left I coloured another piece of white card with 2 distress oxide inks and followed the same procedure as above but adding small black dots to the background and sentiment

I used a pretty blue paper for the last card and the same paper for the sentiment

Flat back pearls were added to all butterflies
