Here is my final card playing with my new Memory Box dies.

I really, really, really like this one! I originally did some sewing on this card to have a "butterfly trail" but then I didn't like how it looked, so I took it out. I did like the holes left behind though. This is the Memory Box butterfly die again, but I also used the Macarena Corner. I cut that apart and snipped it apart...using the bottom for the bottom of the butterfly and the top swirls for the antennae. I used the Leafy Branch that I adore. I added some dimension to the butterfly so it pops up off of the page...and I added some gold ink around the edges. So pretty! I have the umbrella Memory Box die on order, so be looking for some cards made with that die soon!

I really like how this one turned out. I cut the large butterfly out of the black paper so the patterned paper could show through. Then I cut out butterflies that were on a matching piece of cardstock, dyed some baker's twine for the antennae, and embossed a black line around the edge. It's basic and bold...not usually my style, but I really like it. One more butterfly card to go.

I LOVE Memory Box dies! Is that too strong of a word? I think not. I've decided that one can really never have too many dies!!! I recently was able to get a few more (thanks to my amazing hubby that gave me a gift certificate to Stampin' Cat!!!) So here's one of my new cards...
I really like how the butterfly turned out...and the leafy branch as well. Not sure about everything else. I popped open the wings a bit, and that part looks really pretty. I haven't decided if I'm going to post all of my new cards today or spread them out a bit. But one thing is for sure...I love me some dies!!!
