Butterfly Kisses and LadyBug Hugs - AHSC Top 3 Winner

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #102 had a big butterfly in the sketch, and I decided I was going to do just what the sketch had...a Butterfly but using a whimsical, fun and colorful image from Cricut Design Space since I still have a couple days to get free images.  The Butterfly is from "Florals Embellished" Cartridge, and the LadyBug is from "Paisley" Cartridge.  The scalloped mat the butterfly sits on is from "Artfully Sent". The Sentiment was typed in text and then welded together and cut.  When our kids were young I'm sure they remember we used to give them Butterfly kisses... winking our lashes against their cheek, and they in turn would give us a Butterfly Kiss and chuckle.  

The PaperPak "A Year Noted", printed paper and cardstock, was used throughout this card.  And even the ribbon was made from a fussy-cut row of one of the design papers. No glitter this time, but I did use my favorite 3D Thin Foam for the mat and butterfly.  

Again, I make all my cuts for the images in either daisy white or colonial white, and then color the pieces with the colors shown when ungrouped.  The Butterfly cut had about 10 different colors which would mean changing the paper for each much faster cutting all as one color and using ShinHan alcohol pens on each piece.

Beautiful! I love that cartridge.. I haven't used it yet... maybe now that tax season is over. Love that little bit of extra dimension you get from coloring in your pieces after you cut them..

I love that butterfly...I stay away from having to change the paper for layers, but had never thought of just coloring the white pieces. Thanks for the hint!

Wow, I love how you coloured in the layers rather than cutting them from different coloured cardstock- very clever! Thanks for joining us at AHSC.

This is awesome!! That focal butterfly definitely adds a wow effect. I love that your sentiment is done in designer paper but not does not distract from that gorgeous butterfly. Thanks for playing along at AHSC.
