Pink Butterflies Happy Birthday

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.  As challenge hostess for the month, I continue to issue the challenges.

Did you know that the 14th March is Learn About Butterflies Day. So for our challenge this week we need to include at least one butterfly on our cards.

As one of the Terrific Towers Die sets I received for Christmas included a Butterfly Edge die which I hadn't used yet, I decided to pull that out to make my card this week.

This card uses the Made To Surprise 6" x 6" Terrific Towers Die Set along with the 6" x 6" Excellent Edges die set. As you can see I created a pink monochromatic card.

I die cut the card base from pink cardstock and then pink glitter cardstock for all the butterflies and layers for the card. After adding all the butterflies to the card, I added Pink Glitter Dot Peel Off Stickers to the centres of the body.

I used the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the Made To Surprise A5 Stamp Set Sentiments which I stamped onto the white panel using the new Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide ink.

Here is another view of the card, this time when it is lying on the desk. Hopefully you can see the side panels a little better.

On the back of the card I added another of the large panels that I used on the front of the card. I added another sentiment this time for the Sentiments 2 stamp set. I also added the pink glitter layers to the base card and a couple of butterflies.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
