Butterfly - With Thanks

Hi, Friends......

Quick post here to share a butterfly card I made for Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge. I am always running catch-up to get a card in there. One of these days, I will get a card made in the *first* of the two weeks of the challenge. (Fat chance.....lol.)

The theme this fortnight is Butterfly/ies + the Letter C is for colors: Cerise, Cadet Blue, Champagne, and themes: Circles, Candi, and Center Step Fold. The fancy fold was a bit toooooooooo fancy for me to try this time, so I stuck with all three colors and circles. My Graphic 45 Flutter collection had the right colors in it!!

I die cut two of the butterflies (one in champagne and one in cadet blue) and layered them together. I lifted the wings of both colors to give dimension and fullness. This lovely die was a prize from Mrs. A (THANK YOU!!!) and happens to also be one of the prizes again this fortnight!!! So join in and you might win it. :)

Here you can see the simple decoration I did on the envelope....just a strip cut from the scraps of making this card. But isn't it pretty?

Supplies used include:
Graphic 45 - Flutter Collection
X-Cut - Small Butterfly die
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set (for scalloped panels and circle)
M&C Boutique - Large Circle Frame die set
Winnie & Walter - Sentimental: Gift stamp set
Versafine ink in Majestic Blue
Clear embossing powder
DCWV scraps of solid cardstock

Hope you liked my card. Thank you for stopping by.
