Butterfly circle

This card was inspired by the photo challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More  - in particular the   third photo down on the left of the plate of butterfly cakes on a wooden table.

To make the background, I masked off a border then blended DI in Antique Linen and Tea Dye over the card, then stencilled the woodgrain over the top with Walnut Stain.

The three butterflies use kraft for the bottom layer and white for the top, cut using a Dovecraft layering butterflies die. I tried putting them on a plain white circle but it looked a bit dull, so I livened it up by embossing with a Crafters Companion folder.

I am also sharing this with Allsorts challenge where  B is for...... butterflies and bark!
