For the first card, I used papers from a very old magazine freebie booklet, adding a butterfly cut using my old favourite Cuttlebug die, cutting it once using one of the papers from the set and again using a patterned vellum. The body of the butterfly is made with liquid pearls and the bird cage is actually part of a die cut wedding favour that I bought a pack of from The Range - they are meant to be sweet boxes but each one cuts nicely into four separate cages.
For my second card, I used papers from a Crafters Companion pad called "A weekend in Seville" which I won in a recent blog challenge. The butterflies were die cut in white and in a printed pink vellum that's been in my stash for years. Again I used liquid pearls for the bodies, although my white ones had been unused for so long that it seems to have gone a bit thin and splodgy.
