Good  Afternoon
Over at BBTB2 this week our Design Team member Lori chose the gorgeous butterfly cut from Once Upon A Princess Cricut cartridge. I don't own this cart so I made my card using the butterfly cut from my Picturesque cart ( another cart I had to have and not used!! are any of you out there like this?lol YES I hear you say!)
I started out with a 6x6" card blank which I cut down by about 1 1/2 ". I purchased some fabulous new  digi papers from my favourite site Pink Petticoat yesterday and thought they would make a lovely background for the butterflies.The download is brand new in the shop and is called Perfect Papers and is only £2.49 for 24 papers! I printed out 2 of the papers and adhered to my card. I cut a black strip card and punched with my Fiskars Apron Lace border punch. I then added 2 thin strips of the very sticky double sided tape on to the strip and ruffled some seam binding ribbon (which I got from  Ribbon Girl ) across. I then inked around the edge of the card with an aqua blue chalk ink. Finally for my butterflies I used Making Memories shimmer paper from a 12x12 Slice pack and they are cut at 1 1/2" and 1 1/4".To finish off I added some Prima bling which I coloured black with a black permanent marker.

Please pop over to BBTB2 for some wonderful Butterfly inspiration from the rest of the DT and we would love you to join in with us and share your beautiful butterfly creations.
Have a lovely week everyone
