Butterfly Card

I have made this butterfly themed card:


for the following challenges:

Ruby's Rainbow - Butterflies

Bearly Mine Designs - Anything Goes

Generally, I don't like Anything Goes challenges - they give me too many options!  But this was a chance to build up my Thank You cards ready for the end of the school year.  By combining it with another challenge, it enabled me to focus better!

I have used a paper from Bearly Mine Designs.  I bought this butterfly die-cut (Memory Box) at a papercraft expo and hadn't created anything with it.  While it is quite fiddly getting the bits out of the wings, it was definitely worth it.  I have cut the three butterflies from gold coloured pearlised cardstock.

The sentiment is from Pollycraft and I die-cut this with my Spellbinders circle die and added some clear rhinestones.  I usually colour the clear ones with my copics but resisted the temptation this time.
