Fanciful Butterflies Fluttering By

For Gingersnap Creations, this week's color challenge (GS116)  is to use Primary Colors... red, yellow and  blue. Come visit and join in the challenge fun or just look at the Design Teams inspiring pieces, because there is always lots to see and do. So, my inspiration today is our garden because the butterfly bushes are all blooming.  We are being visited by beautiful Black Swallowtails, yellow Tiger Swallowtails,  Longwings  and an occasional Monarch butterfly.

Now my fanciful butterflies are only in primary colors! LOL. Theses can be used  as embellishments on other projects. I started with some images of butterflies and embellished them with foil stickers, rhinestones and Stickles. You can use the sparkly Stickled hair pins to attach them.

Hope you see some beauty fluttering by this week.
sincerely, gerri
