Butterflies, Beautiful Butterflies.

Hi all out there in blogland.  Are you having a good week so far?  I am :-)

For this card, I resurrected some papers and a long card that I last used back in October of last year. Today's card is a birthday card for a friend.  My card base is 8" by 3" from that age old stash from the UK.

The papers are from a Recollections paper pack called Timeless. The lovely butterfly stamps are from an InkaDinkaDo set called Insect Inchies.  Aren't they fabulous.

I stamped them with Memento Tuxedo Black, and layered them on some scallop squares cut on my Silhouette Cameo, the file is from the Silhouette online store.  The cut butterfly is a Birds Cards cut file, cut at 1.25", cut on my Cameo too.

I wanted to add a pop of colour hence the added butterfly, ribbon and inking the edges.

The sentiment stamp is from a Scrappy Moms stamp set called Hooray for Birthdays.

For the inside I used the same papers as the front and used a teeny tiny butterfly stamp from the same InkaDinkaDo stamp set.

This card is being entered in the following challenges.
