I am so excited to be part of the Citrus Twist Kits and The Cut Shoppe blog hop!
Hopefully you've found your way via Candace's blog and are ready for a little more inspiration from me :)
Ashley sent through the most gorgeous cut files for us to use and I knew straight off which I was using and exactly what page I was creating. Which do you think I went with? ;)
Oh yes, that butterfly was totally calling my name!
I've had a photo sitting in my tray for weeks looking for the right opportunity to scrap it and as soon as I saw the butterfly I knew I finally could.
I used a few pieces from the gorgeous May kits (which is still my favourite, I can't say it often enough, loooooove it) for this one as well.
I hand-cut the leaves and just ran them through my sewing machine in the centres so they looked more like leaves and not some random weird shape haha. The butterfly I cut out of white cardstock and it really is quite beautiful in person! Here's a couple close up shots that show it off a lot clearer.
The paper i used for the leaves is from the Pocket Life kit (6x6 Fancy Free) and I added a few little foam crosses and enamel dots (from Main and Add-on kits respectively). Just a couple embellies as I didn't want to add too much to detract from that butterfly!
For my background I went white on white (again, haha) with a few drops of Patina and Butter from Heidi Swapps ColorShine (the mini trio packs, which I picked up from the CTK store).
