The Butterfly Challenge #22 is 'Butterflies + B is for Brads'. This was a good excuse to use up some more of my millions of brads. I do like brads and use them quite often, but I seem to have accumulated quite a lot over the years!
As I have worked nearly every school day so far this month as a supply teacher covering sick leave, (so much for retirement! LOL!), I thought I deserved a little treat and bought myself a set of Sizzix 'Basic Step-ups' dies. The card folded up measures about 11cm x 14cm and makes quite a cute little card. The patterned paper is from a Dovecraft paper stack. I punched out the large butterfly twice using a Stampin' Up punch, embossing the top one before layering them. The little butterflies were punched out with a Fiskars punch and attached with foam pads. The punched flowers have little pink brads in the centre and I've added some white star brads to match the backing paper. So.... that's five more brads used up out of my stash!
I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
