Butterflies.

WOW - two posts from me in one day!

Mrs A's butterfly challenge is to use teal and or texture. I think I've managed both with this card.  The die and

embossing folder were the freebie on the latest Diecutting Essential magazine. I cut the two butterflies out a second time and covered the with foil using the Minc. The Happy Birthday die was also a freebie on a Tattered Lace magazine. I actually thought the letters were joined together until I cut them - fortunately I'd put doublesided tape on the back before cutting them as they are very tiny! To make it easier to attach them reasonably straight I embossed the die onto the card so I had a faint outline to use to line the letters up.

As well as The Butterfly challenge I'm going to join in at Cuttlebug Mania who want butterflies and the Playground  as the teal card was a snippet.

  9. Hello, I have just entered Mrs. A's challenge with this die, and then I spotted your card. It is really lovely, and with the use of the embossing folder, really completes the image. Lynn
