Birds or Butterflies LLLC

Time for some.. Friday inspiration from the ladies over at La-La Land Crafts! :)

This weeks theme has been Birds and/or Butterflies. I really wanted to create something with a birdie. More specifically.. a birdie die cut with my Slice machine. I had a couple of really cute owls in mind.. but behold.. I couldn't find my Slice charger. Mhm. Typical. So I went with the old faithful punch. A punch from Martha Steward.. to create some butterflies.

Stitched Scallops Border Die
Lily of the Valley Die
