Beautiful Wings

Hello... I have a slight obsession with butterflies. When I was younger, I used to collect butterflies. I often found them on the ground (not sure how they died?) but I alway picked them up and took them home. I know that sounds morbid, but I thought they were so beautiful I didn't want to just leave them there to get stepped on or thrown into the trash. I kept them in jars with rocks and twigs, like they are in the garden! I still have some of those butterflies to this day... and they are still as beautiful as they were all those years ago (close to 20 years now!).

I love the 'Beautiful Wings' Embosslit. I love the detail the embossing adds to each tiny butterfly. I started by embossing my background Basic Black piece with the Honeycomb textured impressions embossing folder. I cut the same number of butterflies in both Pool Party and Daffodil Delight. I wasn't too sure about this colour combination, but once the whole project was finished I was quite pleased! I made is so that it appeared as though the butterflies were flying off either side of the page - I turned out just as I'd envisioned.
