Birthday Butterfly!


Hello everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Being a brand new month it is time to introduce our challenge hostess for February, Kristine Reynolds.

This week Kristine has challenged us with a Color Challenge with Stripes …. In a month full of red and pink cards let’s play with some other colors! Let’s have some fun today using Purple, Blue, and Green and for an added challenge I want to see stripes somewhere on your creation.

For my card today I have created a Pivot card using Karen Burniston's Butterfly Pivot Card die from her Pop it Ups for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I am having so much fun creating with these fun new dies Smile. This die set comes with the butterfly pivot die to create the pivot card itself and five decorator pieces … which are the butterfly pieces on the centre of the pivot butterflies.


To create the smaller butterflies on my card I used the Butterfly Accessory Die set. For the fishtail banner the Happy Birthday is stamped on is from the Lots of Pops Pop-Up die.


Here is another look at the left hand side of my card when open.


For the fancy edge on the right side of the front of my card I used two dies from the Agatha Edges set. I love that flourish which helps decorate the card.


And here is the back of my card, love how the back can look as pretty as the rest of the card.
