Just Magnolias and Hanglars - Butterflies!!

Thank you for all the wonderful comments on my post yesterday - I still can't believe a year has past.

Today is Just Manolias and Hanglars day and the challenge this week is Butterflies! And I think my card is a little over the top with Butterflies. More of the "Attach of the Butterflies" LOL But I do love butterflies!
I colored one of my new Hanglar images, I thought she was too cute for a butterfly card. Colored with Copics - then stamped the grass with a Rubber Stamp Tapestry stump. Then die cut with an oval, matted with a coordinating pattern paper,  I used Prima papers, yes.. because they had that gorgeous butterfly pattern :0) I layered the patterns, then I punched out of the three more solid papers a EK Success Butterfly Jumbo punch - the blue for the actual band of butterflies, then I took the red/orange paper and put the butterflies into the blue punch. And the yellow flowers into it as well. Love putting all the pieces back together.

Then for my larger butterflies I stamped two butterflies with Papertrey Inks Butterfly dreams set. They have a matching die.. love that! I die cut extra blue butterflies and put them under as "shadows" Then topped it off with stickles! Butterflies do need bling right? I also added stickles to the Hanglar's wings as well. The sentiment is from Papertrey Inks set -

Make sure to pop over to Just Magnolias and Hanglars Challenge for a great chance at a prize!

Lots going on today - Rehearsal Dinner tonight for the neighbor. She is getting married tomorrow - hope the weather holds, and it isn't too hot! I still have to finish up their card... been working on it all week, and just haven't got it right yet...

See you tomorrow for Animal Crackers.
