Butterfly Wishes

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.  Vicky Gould our challenge hostess for July, finishes off the month with one last challenge.

Apparently July 20 - 28 is National Moth WeekWho knew the moth would have a whole week dedicated to it.  Use a moth (or butterfly) on your card today.  Extra credit if you actually have a moth stamp/digital you can use. This is an opportunity to add to your Birthday Thank you, Thinking of you or just all-occasion card stash!  Let the bugs fly.

For my card today, I was inspired by a card I made a few years ago. I used Karen Burniston's Oval Pull Card die set for the base of the card, this is a die which was created under license and sold via Elizabeth Craft Designs and is no longer available.

 One of the fun things about Karen's dies is you get to decide what size to make your card, so I was able to make this a little long than I normally make them. I used designer paper to to create the pull card and then backed this with the aqua cardstock.

Along the right hand edges I used the Memory Box Kensington Border die set to die cut the aqua cardstock before adhering the panel behind the pull card. I die cut  two more of these borders using purple cardstock and cut out the butterflies and adhering them to the butterflies on the border.

Along the left hand side I die cut a scallop border also from aqua cardstock adding it to the left hand side.

I used the butterflies from the ModaScrap Butterflies die set which I added randomly over the card. 

I added glitter dot peel off stickers to the centres of all the butterflies.

The birthday sentiment on the front of the card is an older one from Me and Carrie Lou, which has been in my stash for years.

When you 'pull' the card open it reveals the two oval panels, one with a sentiment from Impression Obsession and the other left blank for a handwritten message.
