Flutter By & Buttons

It's Post #2 for today!! Be sure to keep scrolling to see my Be Inspired card for the Cuttlebug Challenge.
It's another Flutter By challenge girls! This week Danni challenged us to use a butterfly and buttons in our creation. I sat down to create a butterfly using my butterfly die and embellishing it with buttons. But my dear friend Jacquie sent me this incredible TreasurE of goodies and inside was a HUGE bag of buttons. As I was playing with them, I started laying them out in the shape of a butterfly and really liked the look.

I faux sewed them - using Rebecca's little tip from earlier this week on the big red buttons - and mounted them to my embossed oval.

I really wanted the focus to be on the butterfly so didn't add any other embellishments - not even ribbon! Just a simple stamped sentiment and this card was done! Be sure to visit Danni's blog to see our featured Flutter By girl and the guest stamper this week! We'd love to have you play along - if you do, please use FBW when uploading at online galleries. And leave a comment too - I'd love to come and visit!! You'll find the rest of the team's links over in my sidebars! I can't WAIT to visit them this afternoon and see what they created!!
