I will be teaching a class in twisted Easels so I have to make some samples, This is one of them. I really love this technique. The sentiment in this card is, “May your spirit keep the freedom of a butterfly in spring, and your heart be filled always with the joys of simple things. May your essence claim the freshness of the new laid morning dew. All of this, and more is my Birthday wish for you.”
The butterflies were made with dies from Cherry Lynn Designs.

All materials are from my stash.
It fits the following challenges;
