Caterpiller to Butterfly

 This afternoon I was rummaging through my box of goodies I bought from ebay a while back and dragged this butterfly out - again.  I had looked at it previously and was flummoxed on how to use it.  So today I bit the bullet so to speak and got on with it

I used one my my gel plate acrylic backgrounds for the background and the butterfly.  I die cut it off to the side on the card front panel.  For the background I used my fave embossing folder from Paper Discovery and wiped a small amount of purple Inka gold over the raised areas. I mounted the front panel to the backing and placed the butterfly die cut over the top and cut it inline with the card front.

I punched 2 smaller butterflies using same background and placed them on the edge and again cut the excess off.

The sentiment I found on the internet ages ago (I write my faves down when I come across them) There was no name as to wrote it originally. This was printed onto the card front. I placed navy blue mat to the back and adhered it to the card base. 

Thanks for visiting and please pop in again.
