Trying something new to me

I have been seeing cards with squares with 2 of the corners rounded off and I really like them. So, I decided to try it out for myself and this is what I came up with.
I used the petals (SU) embossing folder, cut it and used my brayer to apply Rose Red ink to half and Summer Starfruit to the other half. I then cut them into 1 1/2" squares and rounded off 2 corners on each. The red overlay is also Rose Red, the stripes are from the DSP paper pad in Subtles, and I used the pearls and Winter White seam binding.   I punched out 2 butterflys from the Elegant butterfly punch, one in Rose Red and one in the DSP paper and added the smallest pearls from the pack.
It's pretty simple, hope you like it and maybe it gives you some ideas.
I'm finding a lot of uses for both the petals embossing folder and the butterfly punch, so they were excellent choices for me.

Simply gorgeous, Lynn!!! Really love it!
I don't know if you are interested in challenges or not but there is a challenge at
with a nice giveaway of a pretty set. The requirement is something with a butterfly on it.

My card today had a butterfly, too. ;)
