Gotta have Butterflies!

How many times lately have I found myself adding a butterfly to my creations? Just seems to work and to be such a gorgeous addition to a card. I'll be posting a stamped butterfly in my next post.
I love this vine print paper and the colors on it and so it was fun to pull out those colors with my cardstocks. Notice the Paper Torn edge using the Core'dinations cardstocks. Paper Tearing is one of the fastest and easiest ways to expose the CORE to the papers.
The butterfly is cut from a piece of Making Memories patterned paper and I cut my little label out and then cut out a coordinating smaller border to it.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
