So how do you like the butterfly? It was made with a 5 petal punch and was, in fact, an accident. I saw on someone's blog (sorry I cannot remember which blog) how to make a 2-tone flower using the 5 petal punch, however, when I tried to duplicate it for my upline I folded the flower the wrong way and she said "Look a butterfly on a flower!" One of my friends (thanks Trisha!) gave me the stamens to use as antennae and the butterfly was complete!! Cute, cute, cute!! All you do is punch 2 flowers out of double sided DP, fold them in half and glue them on a scallop punch with the folded edges together. I used mono adhesive to glue them down and to glue the antennae.

I have been experimenting with my pearl x powders and I am not happy with most of my experiments so I am not posting them. Maybe I will try again or maybe there is a reason I hid them on the bottom shelf!
