A Flutter By Thank You!

Here's my card for this week's Mojo Card Sketch Challenge! I also found a new challenge blog this week called Flutter By Wednesdays! Their challenge this week was to create a project with Butterflies, angels, or fairies and something NEW! Well my card features a butterfly die cut with the Stampin' Up! Beautifull Butterflies die! With this die you can get {4} different butterflies! WhooHoo! I love butterflies - they are so cute! The NEW things for me, was a new card sketch, a new blog challenge at the Flutter By Wednesdays, new color combination, and a new punch technique using the Curly Label punch!!! Lots of new things for me!

I decided my butterfly on this card needed some layers and texture, it's layered with Taken with Teal and Pumpkin Pie! The felt flower in the middle is my body for the butterfly! If you love felt and new embellishments, the New Occasions Mini Catalog has a great new pack of flowers in the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt, which includes 52 pieces! My color choices for this card were based upon the new Sweet Pea DSP stack - oh yes it's a pack of {48} Double-Sided 12x12 sheets! This color combination is: Chocolate Chip, Taken with Teal, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive! My Taken with Teal border on the bottom of the card is punched out with the Curly Label punch! I just punched out 3 of them and adhered them right next to each other! To make the 'pennant' on the Rose Red card stock strip where my 'Thanks' sentiment sits, I punched the edge of the card stock with the Square punch angled diagnally!
