This is a simple 5x7 card project! I used the circle dies and cut a out the center. I used the new Fancy Fritillary Dies and mounted the  die cuts to the inside of the card. The wings lift up through the card. A bit of gold bling finished that off nicely. I worked on the foliage next. I added green skeletonized leaves as a base and colored white card stock with the alcohol markers. I placed my flowers and foliage. It needed a lttle something so I dabbed on some glitter. Next came the small butterflies and the bee. They turned out so well that they blend right with the paper. I embossed three butterflies and colored with water based markers. I stamped one bee and colored it yellow. I placed it in the top of the red flowers and his top wing is bent up so he really looks like he is in flight.  So simple and easy!!!
Here you can see the butterflies and bee wings are truly 3D
Now head over to see what the other design team members have made for you and get inspired!  Please join us for the challenge! I look forward to seeing what you make!!!
