Wow! These pretty embossed butterflies look vintage! I can see them be very appropriate for creating greeting cards, scrapbook layouts, journal pages, mixed media canvases or banners. You could really mix them up and do them with different butterfly shapes, embossing patterns and colors of paper. You could even do ink dragging across them to give them a really different look! Thanks for the inspiration!!!
