Butterfly on a Bush

This was so much fun to design.  My goal was to let
as much of the background and lattice show as possible.
I wanted a dainty branch with tiny Babies Breath type flowers.

The mottled greenish background is 
made with Glimmer Mists on white card stock.
It has been attached to a white card base.

The large white lattice was cut from a die
made by Cheery Lynn Designs.
The green branches are also a Cheery Lynn Designs
die cut that has been carefully placed
to give the appearance of a single branch.

The tiny white flowers are from a Punch Bunch punch.
They have been shaped with a stylus and a
gel pen was used to color the centers.

The butterfly is a Cheery Lynn Designs die.
It was cut from gift wrap that had been
glued to card stock.
Plain vellum was used to create the second layer
of the butterfly wings.
