About this design:

This was a customer request that was challenging and fun to make. She likes butterflies and he likes skulls. The couple was moving in together and wanted to incorporate their tastes.

    So funny Melissa – When I saw this on the design gallery I first saw a butterfly and then 2 people kissing. Guess you got your idea across. Very fun design. I think it’s perfect.

    This is a fun design. When I first saw it I thought it was a butterfly but the teeth of the skull threw me off that idea. Not until you mentioned skulls did I look and it took me a minute before I saw them.

    Skulls and a butterfly. Hummmm? My first thought was a Mod butterfly with square fringe on the wings. A very unusual combination that captures the idea very well. Another fun piece.

    I first thought butterfly but like Pam the teeth made me look closer. It took me a bit but I saw the skulls. Such a clever mix of themes! Well done!
