I Do Love Butterflies!

On a recent shopping trip to Michael's I found a clearance section of K & Co papers and embellishments. It was SO hard to not buy one of everything. But I was pretty good. I bought just a few things. Most of which was papers. I love K & Company papers. These cards started with one of the mats from the "Wild Raspberry" die-cut mat pad. It's already die-cut with the decorative edge... similar to the Top Note die. I cut it in half to make the 2 cards.
For one of the cards, I used the Stix2 double sided adhesive sheets I've been having so much fun with. I punched the butterflies from the sheets and added Stix2 blue glitter.

For the second card, I punched the butterflies out of Chocolate paper that I had run through my Cuttlebug with the Floral Fantasy folder. I really like them both... can't even pick a favorite.
That's all from me... keeping it short and sweet so I can stamp!
