Here is my take on the Challenge. 
I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut the large butterfly cut file from white cardstock, backed it with some of the lovely Cocoa Vanilla 'Hello Lovely' Collection papers & embellies & then added the butterfly back to the cut out after popping it up on foam squares to give it a bit of dimension.

The Blog Hop:
We also have a Blog Hop happening so be sure to visit all of our talented design Gals' blogs to see their wonderful creations & leave them a comment.

Play along, you could win a Scrapbook Boutique $10 Store Credit.
