Scrappy ButterlyBits revisited...

Here's the second "scrappy recycled" card that I had made the other night. I definitely like this one better than the last one... probably because it has more layers and is much more collage-ish looking :) It also measures 3"x5-1/2".

Cardstocks: recycled chipboard base from TAC Workpad, White UltraSmooth, Reece (light ocean blue), Bazzill Mono-Pinks, Bazzill Mono-Blue Greens, misc. dark brown

Inks: Toile Pink, Belle Rose, and Burnt Umber Palettes

Other: White Scrapper's Floss, foam tape, Fruit Punch Stickles, misc. button & ribbon

The butterfly, brocade medallion, "we are friends" strip, and the small brown dotted white cardstock were all, again, in my "pile of stuff I might use later"! And I actually used them... un-freakin'-believeable! The butterfly wings are bent slightly so they "fly off" the page... get it... fly... ok, I'm a dork. Onward!

I foofed up the inside on this one, too... I really like it! And, again, it uses more scraps! The "with love" is popped up on foam tape, and the butterfly is covering up the staples that I used to attach the sheer ribbon.

The ocean blue cardstock is left over from cutting a small star out for a previous project. I roughed up the edges of most of the pieces with just the edge of my fingernail... this turns the edges up, but you don't get all of those loose little bits that end up flying everywhere.

What do you think?

Dude, you totally rocked this one! I'm amazed at how well you cut out the butterfly. It's got a perfect little border of white around it.
