Butterflies and Patterned paper

The new challenge at Butterfly Challenge is Butterfly and patterned paper. Like all good crafters I have masses of paper so this was an easy one for me.

Here is my entry.

and just for good measure I made a second one.

I cut a circle in the patterned paper, placed it onto the white card stock and marked where my butterfly needed to be. Then I pricked the pattern before stitching it in rayen thread. I wanted it to be shiny.  Seed pearl beads finished the body.

I took my inspiration from Gillian over at Made with Sparkle.

  1. Your butterfly design paper is so pretty. I love your embroidery butterflies too. My favourite is the top card but only because I love the colour pink. Thankyou for fluttering by my #26 challenge. Hugs Mrs A.
