Birthday Butterflies


Lots of people using this die in lots of ways lately, so I thought I would join in the fun. I won't lie - this was a little tricky! Because my panel of blues was slightly shorter than the die, when I cut it out, I ended up with a left piece and a right piece which meant I had 3 pieces to put together, rather than just laying the black outline into the panel.  In the end I wrestled it in (almost) perfectly and I'm pretty happy with the results.

Wow, this is fabulous. You know I have been wearing this die out, and never thought of this way. Love your color blocking, and I have added it to the list of things I want to do with this die.

Beautiful composition and design! The black edge around the white butterflies is an excellent contrast and gives lovely definition to the die cuts. I love how they pop against the varied shades of blue.
