Collaged Butterfly


Here's a little reminder card for you for the Mixed Media Card Challenge, where the theme is Collage and the optional element is Frame.


The butterfly die-cut is the remnant from this card, which I've covered with patterned tissue paper and added a few candy dots.  I added a frame to the panel with gold Liquid Pearls, scribbled a bit of Gelato in the corners, and added some gold thread behind the butterfly.

I'm entering this into The Card Concept, The Butterfly Effect.  I'm somewhere between freestyle collage and mixed media, or both.
