Blue-green and gold butterfly panel


I'm back again with another butterfly!
We've had so many in our backyard lately! They seem to go crazy for the flowers on one of the "weeds" we have growing.

I'm linking up to the following challenges:

The Hero Club Blog where it's a nature theme. 
You also need to use a Hero Arts product.
nature-challenge 


Less is More has a wings theme. 
(I hope this clean and layered style is still CAS enough, please let me know if it's not.)
We'd love you to display our banner

Seize the Birthday has a hearts and arrows option, or as I'm doing, it's anything goes birthday.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge has an add texture theme.

I've used snippets of vellum for my painted flowers so I'm visiting the playground at
Pixies Crafty Workshop

Supplies:
Hero Arts antique engravings butterfly; versafine ink & clear ep; Papertrey Ink burlap cover plate;
Memory Box Savannah border die; Carl flower punch; twinkling H2O's; vellum; gold shimmer paper; bling; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
