It's All About the Butterfly!

Butterflies, butterflies...it's so funny, but I really never liked to decorate with them.  But, THEN, awhile back all this wonderful butterfly stuff started appearing for papercrafts.  I was sold!  I saw that this month's issue over at Paper Issues is Birds, Bees, and Butterflies.  So, I decided to pull out the Martha Stewart border punch I've had, but haven't used yet.  (Remember, I am trying to use things I've had for awhile!)  Then I remembered this cutie image and this card was born.
  I used a Spellbinder die to cut the frame.  The layered butterfly is two MS punches and some old glittered butterflies I picked up at Michaels a couple of years ago (yep, using those old things).
  Hope you're looking forward to a great week...I'm looking forward to Lauren coming to visit, so this will be a great week for me!
