My project inspiration came from Patty's FAMOUS Watercolor Wings Card Collection & Pinterest.

Today I have created a Butterfly Bouquet! I know Patty loves Butterflies. I was inspired by the colour combinations that Patty used above. You could use any combination of colours to create your own unique butterflies. I have attached the butterflies to Floral Wire (Spotlight) adhering them with Dimensionals in between each layer. I then bent the wires around to make it look like the butteflies are flying around. I added a touch of grass with strips of green cardstock.
How many butterflies do you think I cut out? Read on for answer.
