Play Date Cafe Color Challenge

The body of the butterfly was made using craft wire. (Anyone besides me have a stash of these tucked away in a drawer?) I wrapped the wire around the needle end of a Paper Piercing tool.

I added a second antennae by bending a second scrap piece of wire; it is held in place by the glue dot holding the body in place.
