Butterfly card

A butterfly is fluttering by to say Hi!

The side view of him:

I can't tell you how happy I am to have made this card!  It is actually very simple to do:  I cut the base of the butterfly with Blush cardstock twice using the Art Philosophy cartridge (at 4.25"), then cut the layer of it with Buttercup cardstock.  I glued the Buttercup layer on top of the Blush butterfly shape to create the card front.  For the base of the card, I scored it at one inch from the top to act as the hinge and this hinge is stuck to the card front.  Finally I stamped the sentiment in Olive ink on Sweet Leaf cardstock.  It is a card in the shape of a butterfly.  How nice!

This card is entering the following challenges:
1.  Heart 2 Heart challenges - spring forward, time, clock, etc.  (It will be my 12th entry!)
2.  CAS on Sunday - flutter by
3.  Addicted to CAS - Wings
