CYS-Three patterned Papers

It's the 28th of the month, and it is time to Create with Your Stash, aka CYS. This month Jeanette challenged us to use 3 different patterned Papers on our cards.

 Since the goal is to use 'stash' items, I pulled out DP from my drawer of unknowns, and cut out butterflies with the retired (ages ago) SU Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die. I layered them over a die and embellished them with Basic Grey pearls. The cardstock is SU as well.
 The Sentiment is Unity by Gina K. I also added a sympathy sentiment from the set on the inside. I am in need of a few more Sympathy cards. In the days of working in Intensive Care, I remember Jan was such a busy month for our unit!

The CYS group can be located here.  List mom Barb had the brilliant idea- lets use our stash items- with a monthly theme, I am sure finding no shortage of items to use in my creative space for this challenge...!!! Even those in the 'get rid of' pile....... HERE is a link to all of the January- 3 different DP cards'the group members posted on Splitcoast for this challenge.

 The group says closed- but we ARE open to new members!

CYS- Use three DP's

Such beautiful butterflies! I love them. Ours have all finally started on their migration to the South. I look forward to seeing them again in a few months in the Spring.

Shelly, your card is gorgeous! I love the colors and the different paper patterns you used. The butterflies are so pretty and the lacy die cut between the butterflies and the background paper is so pretty too! Thanks for sharing your creativity!
