Fluttering By To Say Hello

Are you looking for a new challenge to play? I just found "A Barrel of Monkeys" Challenge where the inspiration is a child's toy! Check out these fun fidgets for the challenge inspiration this time!

I focused on the rainbow colors and the cute butterfly!
I used the Waffle Flower Windows Trio 2 die to cut two rows of butterflies on a white cardstock panel. I just used a ruler to line up the die and taped it in place with washi before I ran it thorugh the die cut machine.
If you look close you'll see the stitched outline that the die leaves on the negative edge of the butterflies. This is a two die set.. the companion die is a trio of hearts. I adhered the panel with some adhesive foam tape so it's raised from the card base.
Next I cut the butterflies from rainbow colors and inserted them into the openings left behind after the die was cut. I used a liquid adhesive that made it easy to make any adjustments aligning the colorful butterflies in the openings.
A simple sentiment from the coordinating "Fluttering By" stamp set trimmed with a paper cutter and a sprinkle of colorful enamel dots are the finishing touch.
I hope you're smiling! Have a beautiful day!
