Trio of Butterflies



There were a bunch of challenges I wanted to play with this past week and finally had the chance this weekend!

The Cuttlebug challenge was to use punches along with the CB of course. I punched my squares and used the textile CB folder and the punched butterflies are textured with CB swirls. The "ribbon" is from candy won and the papers are K&co. I used my SU leaves wheel for the Belli Challenge theme "wheels"! I rolled it across in versamark for a light image then I rolled it over in cocoa for a distressed look! The sketch is from Created by Courtney and the colors were inspired by Madelynn's Twinkling Tues challenge!

Well, here's to starting a new week, which I have no doubt will fly by again....so I better get started stamping now! Have a fabulous week! Much Peace & Blessings to YOU!
