And More Butterflies!

I've been on a butterfly tangent lately with my crafting, but that's not a bad thing. Who can resist such beauty and color? They are such heralders of Spring! I made two new butterfly cards last night and today.

The first one is for the CAS Friday Challenge at Simply Scrapping Crafts. Doris has a great sketch to inspire our creativity, and frankly I could have made at least a hundred different cards from all the ideas that sketch brought to my mind. I used the new Bo Bunny Gabrielle paper (that's the one with the butterflies on it), and Sassafras Lass (it's the pink paper under the white lace). I got the lace from one of my favorite Etsy shops, Creating Is Fun. The dyed seam binding and the stickpin I made myself. The rubon letters are from K&Co.

I made this second one for Clare's Wednesday Card Challenge at Simply Scrapping Crafts. I used some K&Co papers and big butterfly diecut from my stash, along with some hand-dyed seam binding and a handmade stickpin. The sentiment is on the butterfly's wing, and was made with Cosmo Sticket Tiny Type.

Thanks to everyone for stopping by and sharing in my love of butterflies! Love and hugs to you all! Now off to have Italian for dinner at my friends' restaurant - I just love hanging out there!
