Butterfly Tag

Summer is most definitely here with the beginning of a heat wave today.  Temperatures are expected to be in the mid 90s with rising humidity.  Since I do not like the heat, I am patiently waiting for Fall to arrive again!

Today, I have another tag to share featuring a Sizzix butterfly die.  I love butterflies, especially the delicate beauty of this one.


The tag base was covered with paper from Tim Holtz Wallflower collection.  I used an assortment of flowers from Prima, Petaloo and Recollections accented with diecut Prima leaves.  Delicate lace was attached to the bottom of the tag with a strip of Recollections pearls across the top of the lace.  The butterfly was cut twice--once from pattern paper and once from copper cardstock-- and layered together with a brown flatback pearl accent.  I placed the butterfly inside of a chipboard frame.  A piece of seam binding and a Tim Holtz button was placed at the top.


Well, that's it for me today.  I plan on staying indoors where it is nice and cool.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I appreciate your kind comments.  Have a wonderful week ahead!
