Beautiful butterflies!!! You will love them!!  To make this butterflies (bottom) I used DCWV pattern paper of the Nana’s Nursery stack, and half pink pearls to simulate the body. For the butterflies on the twisted side, I used pattern paper of Stamping Paper, and half gray pearls to the body. I put distress ink around the edges.

Las mariposas estan hermosas!!! Les encantaran!! Para hacer estas mariposas (abajo) use paperl decorado DCWV del paquete The Nana’s Nursery stack, y medias perlas rosas para simular el cuerpo. Para las mariposas que estan el la parte doblada de la tarjeta use papel de Stamping Paper, medias perlas grises para el cuerpo. Y para darle el toque final puse distress ink alrededor de las mariposas.
