Butterfly on kraft

paper piecing-The Pixie Cottage
things with wings-Paper Play

buttons and threads-Allsorts
delightful stitches-Delightful Sketches

I used one of my very favorite stamps, this cloisonne butterfly from Michael Strong. As you can see in the top picture I paper pieced it, its on the same paper that is on the bottom of my card. I then stamped it on just some scrap white cs and cut out the wings from the pp and glued them to the cs. Then I cut it out leaving off the antennae. Then stamped it on kraft and just glued it in the middle where the body is. So its fixing to fly off the card lol. The pp is from Melody Ross. I added some stitching around the top. Then I added some red buttons and some light green and white twine. Below is the sentiment, it was too big and so I put in the middle of the card. I dabbed around all the edges with tea dye distress ink. 
And like the card before this one, if  anyone wants it I will send it to the first person who asks.
