When I attended one of the last SU workshops, the SU demonstrator stamped and heat embossed some of the new Swallowtail butterflies using black EP.  She then cut them in half and used 2 of the same halves so we could make the butterfly as shown above.
I used SU markers to color in the areas.  It was several weeks later before I got around to making this card.  I cut a piece of the light yellow card stock slightly smaller than the front of the Cajun Craze card base and embossed it with the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder.  When I was in Des Moines with my friends we shared our Memory Box dies and I finished off the front with this "HAPPY birthday" sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by!
