Big Butterfly!


I love this big butterfly!  Its a Sizzix Bigz Die (I have never used it before!)  I die cut it then embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder.  Its diecut from a piece of card I had already coloured - I think I had used Distress Inks and Glimmer mist.  The quote is from A Little Bit Scenic - Flying Colours by Sheena Douglass and is stamped with Versafine and embossed with clear powder.  The edge of the white panel is inked with Wild Honey Distress Ink and  I added brads and some shiny stones for a bit of bling.  Also added some photo corners coloured black with a Promarker just to finish it off.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Butterfly Challenge - Brads
Darnell's Blog - NBUS (New Stuff)
CASology - NBUS (New Stuff - Clean and Simple)



Please visit these blogs, all are awesome!

Thank you for visiting me - I appreciate it oodles!  Take Care. Christine xxx

Gorgeous card! I have some large butterfly dies and feel they are too large, but for this design bigger is better! Great use of a big die!!!
