If not, head on over to The Twinery blog so that you can start from the beginning and not miss a stop along the way...or a chance to win our fabulous prizes!

I was a cross-stitcher, back in my high school and college days, and love how versatile the baker's twine from The Twinery is for hand-stitching on layouts, cards and in mini albums. After die cutting several solid butterfly die cut shapes, I embellished the center by stitching the center with solid Pink Sorbet.

The Details

To further embellish the card, I added the Dream die cut and cross-stitched, in solid Pink Sorbet again,  along the edge. | Butterfly Dream Card | Butterfly Dream Card
