Butterflies

Hello everyone!  I hope you're all having a good week.  I'm still coming down off of my birthday high.  One of my favorite presents this year is the Martha Stewart butterfly punch that my husband got me.  I've already used it on two layouts, and yesterday I was punching butterflies out of all of my scraps and the idea for this card came into my head.  I think I've seen home decor pieces that were similar on Pinterest or somewhere.  It reminds me of the boards people make when they collect real life butterflies.

For the card, I punched the butterflies out of paper from the Simple Stories SNAP 6x6 pad.  One of the yellow ones has Crystal stickles and two white pearls.  I wanted one of them to stand out.  All of the butterflies' wings were bent up and they were adhered with liquid adhesive only on their back, for a bit of dimension.  The background paper is from an Authentique 6x6 pad and the whole thing was adhered to an A2 card.  The inside of the card has my one left-over yellow butterfly in the bottom corner, but I didn't take a picture of it.


This card is being entered into the following challenges:
