How to make Transparent Butterfly – VIDEO

I told you guys I loved making that butterfly! Thank you Karen Baker for making such a stunning card and providing step by step instructions because I fell in love!

All items can be purchased at Simon Says Stamp, my favorite online retailer! Here are a few close ups:

    Stunning card Laurel. I think I like this background better, the butterfly really stands out with the more subtle background. Of course, I love the first card with the butterfly, so it’s big for me to say that I like this one even more 😀
