CraftyJc Many Colours Challenge and CASual Fridays

When I saw this months challenge over at CraftyJC - Many Colours, I immediately thought of a rainbow, where else do you see so many colours?!!
So with my newly cherished Martha Stewart butterfly punch I set about punching a variety of colours of butterflies, and as they seemed a little boring on their own I embossed each with a different embossing folder.
The first card I made simply used the butterflies in a grid and a simple sentiment. Each butterfly was raised up with foam pads. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Teeny Trees, and I made it into a little ribbon shape to add some extra dimension.

The next card also uses some rainbow butterflies, but I just chose 6 and added a ribbon for each. The sentiment featured heavily on this card so I'm also entering it into this weeks CASual Friday challenge.
You can't see the ribbons clearly on the above picture due to the flash, so here's a clearer one.
I hope you like this little flash of many colours!!


  1. Very pretty and oh so happy! Thanks for getting sentimental with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  2. What a great idea to use a sentiment for each one of the butterflies! These are both pretty. Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays this week:)

  3. Lovely way to use a butterfly punch, I think I will be borrowing this idea. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. These are beautiful, Bee! I love how you embossed the butterflies.
