Butterfly flowers and a PTI Challenge

Seems like such a long time since I played with my PTI stash, all I seem to have done craft wise is make cards for swaps, I think its time for me to make some £d projects and cards for fun …

I really wanted to take part in the current A Passion for Papertrey Challenge which is to create something with flowers …

I’ve recently seen a gorgeous flower made with the Stampin Up butterfly punch and tissue paper, I had to have a go, so I created this, let me know what you think:

I made a few, they’ve gone to my new PTI penpals in the US


Stamps: Delightful Dahlia, Everyday Button Bits, Background Basics Botanicals (PTI)
Cardstock: Whisper White (SU), Raspberry Fizz (PTI)
DSP: Bitty star basics, bitty dot basics, holiday cheer (PTI)
Raspberry Fizz, scarlet jewel, fresh snow (PTI)
Embellishments: 5/8" Raspberry Fizz Saddle stitch ribbon and button, twine (PTI),
ools - Paper cutter and scorer, Snail adhesive, Butterfly punch (SU).

Note for Pat .... Best way to punch tissue is to punch the tissue with a layer of cardstock behind otherwise the tissue will tear.
