Recently I ordered and received the beautiful Cheery Lyn Designs die "Small Lace Faerie Queen".  It is so delicate but cut perfectly through the dp I used.  The three layers of green dp are from Memory Box.

I ran the front of the card through my Cuttlebug using a folder from Sizzix.  To follow through with a design from nature I thought the leaves were a good choice to go with the butterfly.

The two green layers were cut using Spellbinders Labels 11.  I attached the butterfly to the die cut layers by applying Diamond Glaze to only a few spots of the center of the design so that the wings were left free to give some dimension to the card.

Recently I have needed quite a few birthday cards.  This card was sent to my friend, Georgia, who is celebrating her birthday today. 

 Thank you for stopping by!
