OCC ~ Beautiful Butterflies!


Hello everyone and welcome to Saturday and another Challenge from the OCC! This week's challenge is another fabulous one from our April Hostess Dana Grothaus. This Week Dana is challenging us to create a card/project using Butterflies! They can be big, small, punched, stamped or on patterned paper.....we just want to see your beautiful butterflies! Well, easy enough for me, I LOVE Butterflies!



I made these beautiful Butterflies by embossing my images onto cardstock vellum using my Brocade Blue & So Saffron craft ink, then embossing them with 'Pretty Pearls' embossing powder. I was so sad when SU! decided to retire 'Pretty Pearls' and some of the other speciality embossing powders!
Stop by Our Creative Corner and join us for this week's Challenge!

PAPER: Bordering Blue, So Saffron, Le Jardin DSP, Very Vanilla, CS Vellum
