I love trying new things and I have been learning so much about paper crafting. I just looked back at my first blog entries and I have come so far! I almost wanted to remove posts of some of my first attempts but I didnt.

I recently bought a couple Spellbinders Impressabilities! On this recent card I used the Flower Silhouette on patterned paper. I lightly went over the embossed area with peeled paint distress ink to help the flowers pop.

I also got a MS butterfly punch. I punched one piece of purple paper, then punched some clear plastic. (I keep scraps from food and craft packaging like plastic and cardboard to use later) For the plastic butterfly I used a straight edge to help bend each wing up from the body, keeping the body flat to sit on the card. On the plastic I also ran a few lines of glue and poured glitter over. I then ran another bit of glue down the underside of the body on the plastic butterfly and adhered it to the paper one.
