Beautiful Things

It's time for Team A to host the challenge at The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog this week and Dawn has chosen the theme - To Die For.  This is my card:

I used the beautiful Crafty Pad Designs image - Butterfly with verse and borders.  I kept things really simple just mounting the lovely verse on a die cut base.  I printed the butterflies in several sizes, cut them out and added some black Sakura glaze.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

We have two great Sponsors this week:


I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:

and this is a close up of the lovely verse:


Card Stock:  Joanna Sheen - Stardream Onyx
Tools:  Spellbinders - Butterflies Circles and Standard Circles
Embellishments:  Sakura - black gloss pen

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Pauline - I picked up a wonderful idea today looking at your CAS card ... printing the butterfly in different sizes to layer. Duh! Never occurred to me! I also love that you repeated the exact same die inside - it really makes your card look elegant. Thanks for teaching me something today!
I am so glad you joined the challenge - and hope to see you again next week at Craft Your Passion! (Come on, see what you can teach me next time!)
