Beautiful Country Butterflies

You can create some beautiful country butterflies for friends and family with the supplies listed below. The soft color and background embossed floral design go perfectly together.  I also love the black outline of the butterflies because it makes them pop off the card.  It’s created with the Beauty Abounds bundle.
