Butterfly Trio

I found these gorgeous butterflies on Mei's stall at the craft show Saturday and just couldn't resist, so had to grab myself a couple of packs (the photo doesn't do them justice, the stone in the centre sparkles beautifully and the wings are made from shiny metallic wires which also sparkle when they catch the light).
You may have noticed one already on yesterday's card, but this time around I have used three and they are the main focus of the design. 
For this card I made a square card blank from a piece of A4 card, printing the wording on before cutting and folding. I embossed lines across the front using my Hougie board, then drew a line between the embossed sections with my quickie glue pen and added glamour dust. One large and two small butterflies were attached with dollops of tacky glue and hey presto! there you have it. Simple and sweet.

The butterflies come in two sizes, the small ones are five in a pack and contain, 1 each of five colours, turquoise, black, silver, pink and red. The larger ones have four in a pack and have 1 each of cerise, turquoise, silver and black. I'm don't think they are on the website yet, but if you fancy some just email Mei and she will get it sorted for you.
Thanks for looking
