Butterfly Challenge

My card today has been made for the Butterfly Challenge, but after I made it I realised that it also fitted the Pixies Snippets Playground challenge too as all of the card stock except for the base came from the snippets/scraps box. I started with the Hunters Green card and then the Hot Pink, deciding that this was a bit plain on it's own I had another delve into the box. I found a piece of patterned card that went perfectly and after cutting everything to size I cut out a butterfly with the waste Hot Pink. I stamped and embossed Happy Birthday onto a piece of the Hunters Green waste. Next I stuck the patterned paper to the plain card and cut out another butterfly through both layers. I then stuck the Hot Pink and patterned piece onto the Hunters Green card this left a lovely green silhouette butterfly. I stuck the greeting to the bottom of the card and took the pink butterfly I cut earlier and placed this into the silhouette but only stuck the body down so that I could lift the wings. Then finally I added some antenna to the butterfly with a black liner pen. The butterfly die that I used was from Stampin Up

I used Hot Pink, Hunters Green and Heat Embossing from the Butterfly wheel.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Fabulous card Sue - I do love the technique of die cutting the solid aperture for a lacy butterfly - and such wonderful colours as well!
