CupCards to Go challenge

To those of you who got the fun-filled November 'Ribbon Candy' kit from CupCards to Go, I have challenge.

One of the first things that really caught my attention when I first opened my kit was the beautiful butterfly sticker sheet by Jenni Bowlin. But then I started thinking, butterflies + Christmas... huh????? I just wasn't get the connection. So it was time to put my thinking cap on, and what I came up with was a butterfly Christmas tree card.

Since the butterflies were red, I decided to put the butterflies against a green background so they would really pop off the page. I hand-stitched the butterflies into a triangle shape for the tree and added a base with some brown patterned paper. Then, I added one of the flower embellishments from the kit for a topper, some ribbon for decoration, and some rub-ons to frame it up a bit.


So here is my challenge to you: Find a creative way to showcase those butterflies on a Christmas card/project. Not just one or two, but 5 or more butterflies. You have until November 20th to get your project posted in the comment section of this post. A winner will be randomly selected to receive a mini kit from CupCards to Go.

So start creating. Can't wait to see what you come up with!!!
Thanks for stopping by! :)
