Morning all, i hope you are all having a good week.

Today im sharing a batch of fairly simple cards using my new butterfly die.  These were some of my birthday thank you cards and then i did a few for the box.

I first die cut a white hexagon and stamped my greeting, then i added cosmic shimmer plum powder in the area i wanted my butterfly and let dry.  Love this new colour, the shimmer shakers are the upgrade to pixie powders.  It has a beautiful shimmer in the light.  I then a added to a black card blank cut with a larger hexagon die.  Then i added my black die cut butterfly and black gems to his body. 

This one uses blue brusho's and a white butterfly

Red and blue brusho's

Yellow brusho & peacock pixie powder. 

Blue brusho and red pixie powder.  Finished card size approx 6x6"

The butterfly die was a birthday gift so im sorry i don't know the brand or make. 

Items Used:
Hexagon stitched dies
Butterfly die
Brusho Powders
Cosmic shimmer pixie powders & shimmer shakers
Sentiment stamps - magazine freebies
Clear & Black gems

Thank you for stopping by and i hope you all have a good weekend.  Emmax
