Beautiful Butterfly- Love today

I made another scrap card today for 3  different challenges. 

I used 2 of my favorite butterfly stamps on my card. 
Here today, Here tomorrow


I pulled all these papers out of my scraps bags to start.

 I narrowed it down to these papers.

One of the fun scrap papers that I used was this piece. It was part of an envelope. I stenciled butterflies and dyed it with blues and greens. 

Here is how it looked after I embossed it with a script folder.

 I stamped the sentiment and stamped the silhouette butterfly from Trendy butterflies to the golden panel. The Unity butterfly I cut out and added black cardstock for the antennas. A long time ago I stopped trying to cut out antennas and cut a super slender piece of cardstock and folded it to make them. So much easier this way.
 I used a brad to hold the burlap on. This is how it looked on the back. I felt it should be covered up.
 So I took another scrap and a black pen and stenciled butterflies onto it. That is what I cut and glued down to cover the back of the card.

For the inside of my easel card, I used another scrap and stamped the silhouette butterfly again.
