You give me butterflies. (CIC251)

Time for a new challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations!!
Our sponsor this week is 7 Kids College Fund

7 Kids College Fund is generously offering a fabulous prize to our randomly drawn winner! 

Thank you for sponsoring this challenge!

Here's is this week's inspiration cupcake.
Our challenge is BUTTERFLIES.  

Here's my take...

Husband and I didn't have much in the way of a "dating" relationship. We went straight from friends to engaged within 18 days. I told him from the very beginning that he gave me butterflies and it's kind-of been our thing. (Yes, ANOTHER one!) So when I saw this challenge and this die (which I got from 7 Kids College Fund), I knew that I wanted to do a card with him in mind (even though it might not go to him).

After die cutting the front panel, I used Purple Stickles on all of my butterflies. My matting panel is Wild Wasabi textured cardstock. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Short and Sweet set and stamped in Wild Wasabi as well. Once my card was dry and adhered all together, I carefully pulled all my wings up so you can see the green beneath. Love that look.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
7 Kids Challenge Blog #94 - Anything Goes
As You Like It - Favorite 3D Texture (I love die cuts like this because it make the butterflies look like they are about to fly off the card. So cool!)
