Butterfly Window Card


Anyone interested helping out as a guest designer using a sponsor product for the upcoming Cat Hop, please email me: jwoolbright at gmail dot com for more info.


Hi, Friends.....

Quick post to get this pretty butterfly card in under the wire at Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge.  I've been busy with Cat Hop things and also fighting a nasty cold....so I put off making this card.  Arrrgh...that's why I am posting it in the middle of the night!!  lol....

Mrs. A gave us several color options (wheat, wisteria, watermelon, and wild blue yonder), a theme (wood), and a window card fancy fold option.  Guess what????  I managed to find some fabulous Graphic 45 paper in my stash that had all 4 colors!  I used a big wooden butterfly and made the window card design.  

 I got the card nearly finished and realized the big butterfly was actually chipboard and not wood at all.  Oh, NO!!!  So I found some pretty flower/butterfly embellishments that Mrs. A had sent me once in a lovely prize.  I am fairly sure they ARE wooden.  I stained them to match the color of the chippie and added them, too.  Whew!!  

The Happy Birthday ribbon is some I made with my label maker.  I received this label maker as part a big stash-pruning prize a long time ago.  It came with a bunch of different tapes....and a number of them are printable ribbon.  This is the first time I have been brave enough to try custom printing a ribbon embellishment.  Fun!!

Supplies used include:
Graphic 45 Secret Garden collection
Southern Ridge Trading Co - big chipboard butterfly
Wycinanka - little wooden butterfly and flower embellishment
Distress Ink
Custom printed ribbon

Hope you like my card.  I love how it turned out.....even though it is the wrong season.  I will save it for spring.  :)  Thank you for stopping by!!
