Butterflies for Twofer

Hello friends.  I'm so glad  you stopped by.


Today I have cards for the Darnell's Twofer Challenge #5

Here's a close up.
I made it into a shaker card.
The acetate makes it look blurry to me.  Or maybe it's just my eyes.

I masked the butterfly to make a row on the next card.

The butterflies on both cards have been stamped and heat embossed, 
then colored with Zigs.

I've also winked them for extra sparkle.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

I love your two different butterfly cards Bonnie, and the three shaker frames work perfectly with the prettily coloured butterflies, and then the beautiful row of them achieved with great masking and love the loose flower beneath them too. Gorgeous! x
