Butterflies on the wing


For the second challenge, we were to make a spiral cut card. First time for me and what fun! I am definitely going to make one of these again. The instructions for it are here

The first photo on the left shows the inside, my little spiraling butterflies. Easy peasy Lemon Squeezy (as the one commercial says) when you use a punch. I took my Martha Stewart butterfly punch, opened the drawer where I (hoard) keep my DP and punched five times in different colored scraps of paper. Voila! A flock of butterflies to put inside my card. (do butterflies travel in flocks, packs, or something else?) I have no idea whose DP is whose, the minutes I cut a piece of the name off, and have scraps left, I'm lost. Anyway, thanks for looking and try this technique, it is a lot of fun!
Stamps: Stampin Up Winged Things, PTI Green Thumb sentiment additions
Ink: Black stazon
Paper: SU Tangerine something, PTI lemon, neenah solar white, assorted DP
Other: MArtha Stewart butterfly punch, labels 4 nestability, orange GG ribbon, blah, blah, blah
