Springtime Birthday Butterflies

Hi Everyone!

Happy Monday!!  Seeing as it is Monday, it's time for another fantastic sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  This week's sketch is awesome and so versatile, I just know you will love all of the DT creations and will want to play along as well.  Drop on by and check us out!!

Here is this week's sketch:

For my card today, I decided to use Stampin' Up!'s gorgeous new stamp set - Butterfly Basics - and the coordinating Butterfly Thinlet dies.  I have been seeing both of these items everywhere as of late.  It seems that everyone is in love with these items and I am no different.  

Here is my card:

I wanted to add some depth to the butterflies so I first die cut one in Crisp Cantaloupe and then cut a second using the Calypso Coral page of the Best Year Ever DSP in the Sale-a-bration catalogue.  I just recently received this DSP and it is so much more lovely in person than I thought it would be.  I guess it's true, pictures don't often do things justice.

I will also be entering my card in this week's challenge over at Stampin' Royalty.  I love the Springtime colours of this week's challenge.

Finally, I will be entering this card in this week's "Anything Goes" portion of the Seize The Birthday Challenge - what a fun way to build up your birthday card stash!!
