Braided Butterfly


I saw this challenge with 'The Butterfly Challenge' and thought it would be fun to try something new with this braided edge.  I had some two-tone Recollections cs, pink on one side and lavender on the other.  The lavender and blue paper on the front is from Recollections as well.   I cut the long piece out of a piece of scrap and rounded the two corners.  The butterflies are from Simon Says Stamp  - The Devonshire Butterfly and the Pauling Butterfly dies.  The sentiment is also a die from SSS ... You're Amazing which I think was a gift from SSS.  I added a bit of Wink of Stella on the top butterfly to shine it up.  I added the peach Neuvo drops and white gel pen stitching.  

I would like to add this card to the following challenges if I may.

The Butterfly challenge for the inspiration - hitting all of the items with P, Plaited fold, periwinkle, peach, plum, pair of butterflies 
Unstampable Bellas - Seasonal with no stamping
A Place to Start - Create your own challenge - "Learn something new"
Crafty Hazlenut - With pattern paper
Double D Challenge - Signs of Summer

Thank  you so very much for stopping by

Wishing you a wonderful day.
