Have you noticed all the beautiful butterflies......

This summer is flying by way too fast.  Even my youngest, who is now a Senior, said the same thing today.  We haven't done anything special this summer, so I think secretly he's glad it's flying by and is ready to start his senior year.   Another thing that has been flying by are beautiful butterflies.  When the boys were younger, they would catch butterflies in these really cute cages.  Of course, after admired, they had (were suppose) to let them go.

This week's project for The Cutting Cafe' we got to choose from Butterfly themed sets.  I chose this Butterfly shaped card/template/cutting file.

Hope you enjoy my butterfly creation.
I opened the butterfly cutting file into Silhouette designer studio.  I did some offsets to get the working around the butterfly.  I also cut an extra butterfly for dimension.  Added ribbon for the body and some jewels for some bling.  I really wanted to sew it with my sewing machine, but I'm alittle nervous.

Close up of the details
Hope you enjoy my card.  I really enjoyed doing it.  Go by The Cutting Café's blog tomorrow and look at the other Design team's projects, you won't be disappointed.  These ladies are amazing.  Also don't forget to comment, because every week Mrs. Regina gives a way sets (a lot of times it's three)
Have a wonderful day!

  2. Tanya, this is adorable! I love how you added the little gems, the ribbon, and the writing around the edge. I like your selection of colors too. Very cute! That would be a fun card to give or receive.
