Butterfly Hello

Hi, everyone!  My card today was inspired by Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge.  This time the theme is Butterflies and Y for Yarn.  I saw an awesome card by Shari Carroll over on the Simon Says Stamp blog and I loved it so much that I decided to CASE it - you can see her card here.


I don't have the Simon card kit so I used what I had. I started with kraft cardstock (DCWV) and applied Brilliance Gold Galaxy ink through a Heidi Swapp chevron stencil to make a chevron strip.  I die cut a butterfly (Cheery Lynn Small Exotic Butterflies #1) from MME patterned paper. Using the negative die-cut, I rounded the corners and layered it onto a DCWV metallic patterned paper with foam tape. I added a Memory Box Rhone Butterfly in yellow into the negative die cut.


I die-cut the Savvy Dies hello from black cardstock and black craft foam and layered them together and applied a coat of Glossy Accents.  I stamped the sentiment (Clearly Besotted A Little Sentimental) and cut the words apart.  I made a triple-loop bow out of yellow yarn and added a thin strip of black cardstock along the left edge. To finish off the card, I added a number of black sequins. Definitely not as CAS as Shari's card, but I'm happy with how it turned out!

I would also like to join the following challenges: Beccy's Place September AG UE; Cheery Lynn Things with Wings 1E; Craft Your Passion Always AG 3/3;Crafting from the Heart 2/3; Crafty Gals Corner AG 1/2; DL.ART September Linky AG 1/day; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Not Just Cards AG UE; Penny's Paper-Crafty Use a Bow or Christmas 1/3; Scrap and Craft Butterflies 1/3; Scrapbook Blessings Club AG optional Favourite Technique (stencilling and using die cuts) UE; Simon Says Stamp Monday Love this Technique (stencilling and using die cuts) 3/5; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Die Crazy 1/5; The Craft Barn Stencils/Masks 1/3; The House That Stamps Built Repeat Impressions WIW Photo Inspiration Challenge ~ S1615 UE; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 1/5

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

This is soooooooooooooo cute! I saw it in the CGC gallery and before I even knew who it was I had to click through and say that I LOVED it - turns out it's yours! Even better! So eclectic and fun! Sorry I have been missing in the commenting lately - I'm in the process of moving, so the next two weeks are going to be super hectic and I'm not going to have much time. Please forgive me!

Wow Kitty!! This metallic patterned paper behind the negative of the butterfly is really an interesting design!! Love how you arranged all the pieces to make this patchork card! The yellow little butterfly and the yarn bow look great and the foam sentiment has a beautiful 3D look that contrast with the other words! Fabulous work!

I LOVE THIS!!!! The card is beautiful and I love the soft touch of yellow in the yard and the butterfly - such awesome details on this card - like the side border, and the black hello, the cut-up sentiment and the butterfly cut out that the yellow butterfly is resting in!! Such a delightful and pretty card!!! Hope you are having an amazing day!!

I really like this card KT... it's got a fun, artsy, collage look to it. I love the way you've added the "hello", it kind of looks like it's floating above the other elements. You did a great job CASEing Shari's card.
Cheers,
