Butterfly Embellishments for January Swap at the (Scrap) Beach!

I created these butterflies for the Butterfly Embellishment swap at the Scrap Beach for the month of January. We were to create three different types of butterflies with a little something extra for each of our groupmates.

The white corner butterfly is cut from a cricut cartridge, the red/silver butterfly is made from a piece of silver Designer Metal sheets. The red is from a piece of red acrylic that I bought from the Dollar tree about 3 years ago. I also used this to create the background by embossing it with a Cuttlebug Heart embossing folder for details. Crochet cotton was used to make the white lace butterfly. A glass butterfly bead was all I needed to create the dangle charm attached to the tag. I have never made a COMPLETED dangle charm like this and I tell you...it is more difficult than I thought!
