Butterfly Blog Hop






Thank you for fluttering by today and seeing all the butterflies we have in this hop. These crafters have preformed butterfly magic again with their creations and I hope you enjoy looking at the beauty of these creations.

Jearise from http://lorbysworld.blogspot.com is our hostess today and she has a butterfly filled gift for one lucky visitor today so please make sure you begin at her blog to find out how to enter the drawing.

Here is my little bit of butterfly magic for today...




 This a 5.5 inch square card The background print is a freebie I got from Mark Montano ( Black Plate Special He Crafts She Crafts with Mark Montano Butterflies) a few months back. The frame mat is from the art Philosophy cartridge circle 4 cut at 4.75 inches  and since I am horrible at trying to center point cut I cut it from an 11.5 piece of black card stock and then cut it down to 5.25 to fit my card and embossed  it with Divine Swirls folder. The colored Butterflies were inspired from a YouTube video by Brenda Bliss "Vellum Butterfly Tutorial part 3. Hers are much nicer than mine but for a first attempt ho too bad. I cut them with a sizzix framelits die and stamp set. then colored with my assortment of colored pencils. Added some white ribbon and a bow and done!

Thank you so much for joining us today and please flutter on to Lissa Marie.

This is absolutely beautiful! I love the black and white and then just the splash of color really makes the black and white background stand out. Thank you so much for hopping with me. Hugs from Jearise in Lorby's World.
