Winner and Lacy Butterflies

Hi Y'all,
The winner of the prize for the Quietfire Design Butterfly Blog Flutter from my blog has been chosen.

But first, I have another card to share.

This is a dimensional card that didn't scan very well. It's much prettier in real life. BTW, sorry for the loving kitties decided to kill my digital camera a while back and a replacement just isn't in the budget right now. Note: the black edging on all my scans are not part of the card, just needed so that the scanner won't cut off the edges.

The butterflies are done with the Spellbinders Nested Butterflies Two on white cardstock. I smeared Crystal Stickles all over them and made a slight center fold on both butterlies. The smaller butterfly was attached to the larger with double-sided tape. Place purple Bling along body, for eyes, and on wings. The antenae are the waste from the large butterfly, attached with a bead of Stickles. Cut two layers of yellow Core'dinations cardstock with two sizes of Spellbinders Lacy Squares. Create a square card out of orange Core'dinations and assemble with double-sided tape.


Cut another two layers of yellow with the Lacy Squares. Stamp saying from the Butterfly Circles set on white cardstock. Cut out with Spellbinder Standard Circles Large. Run a bead of Stickles around the edge and fill in the tiny butterfly. Turn small square for a sense of movement.

Now, for the winner of the $50 prize...
