MC Aug/12 - BFly Easel - HB

I absolutely love the way this card turned out and it was totally serendipitous for both the decorative background that I created and then the hovering butterfly card. It also took me almost all day to make - Sheesh. I was fiddling...

Anyway I used one of my newest dies from memory Box - Curly Wreath - which is a circle with curly filigree scallops. When I saw that die, I thought it was nice the way it was, but I envisioned it broken apart and reassembled into a wavy straight line to use as a border piece. And that's just what I did. Love using it that way.

Anyway to see lots more details and descriptions, just click on card image and enjoy.

I'm using several  Quietfire Design quote, sentiment & design element stamps.

And it fits for these challenges:
CC Monthly Challenge  #27 best friends
Tuesday Throwdown  #110 add something that moves (BFly hovers above base)
Desert Island Crafts  #35 use any 3 items: strips, spots, flag/bunting, red, spray/mists, layers, texture, humour, bkgr'd image, something that moves
Fab n Funky  #133 Pearls & Rhinestones
CCEE Stampers  #12-32 Shaped card
Paper Play Challenges  12-32 Shaped card
Old Back Porch  #32 card a week
All Sorts Challenge  #167  circles (the piece under the butterfly base are cut with spellbinder's circle die)
