Friday Die Day

Hello friends
In the midst of wet cold weather and preparations for Christmas I thought this Friday
I would go for....butterflies! 
These are Wonderful Wings and my goodness...they are WONDERFUL!
These are a Grand template and you receive 10 dies. 
For each butterfly shape you receive a  solid shadow that is slightly larger than the intricate butterflies 
die templates.  This enables you to layer if you wish.
These is how they look cut/embossed.
And this is going to be a butterfly tag!
I arranged three of the intricate butterfly dies, securing them with
Cut/emboss.
I then stamped over the entire tag with Texture Script Stamp
Place some festive patterned paper behind each butterfly aperture.
You can neaten the back by applying another tag or just some cardstock cut to the shape.
I then replaced my intricate butterfly die cuts, inking the edges of each one.
Added some tiny crystal gems and ribbons.
A close up.  I did succumb to Christmas ...in a butterfly way!
Have a lovely Friday dear friends.
Take care.
