#GDP024 Butterflies!

“They seemed to come suddenly upon HAPPINESS as if they had surprised a butterfly in the winter woods.”

~Edith Wharton

The challenge this week over at  http://www.global-design-project.com is a “Case the Designer” challenge.  I made the same card twice, just turning over the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper on the base, and changing the sentiments from the Watercolor Wings Stamp Set.  The butterfly, also stamped from the Watercolor Wings stamp set, is cut out with a Butterflies Thinlits Die, and the cardstock and ink colors are Watermelon Wonder, Blushing Bride and Mossy Meadow.  I purposely cut the DSP so that there would be a little line of hearts on the very top….adds a sweetness factor!  The Mossy Meadow scallops on the bottom of the paper inspired a scallop punched bottom on the Watermelon Wonder “Inset Tag” (just made up that phrase!)  : )    Thank you Michelle Last and Global Design Project, for another bout of inspiration!

Next Day Edit:  I had to make a  birthday card today, so made another butterfly card.  I had an epiphany to add some green dots to the background of the striped DSP!  The Birthday Girl sentiment is from the new Sale-A-Bration “Hello” stamp set.  : )

  1. Dawn – your pink and green butterfly is really lovely! I love how you’ve paired it with different backgrounds. LOVE the Mossy Meadow polka dot background with it. These are great. Thanks you so much for playing along with this week’s CASE the Designer Challenge at Global Design Project – I’m glad you did.

  2. Love all these cards, but the green polka dots are really eye catching! And the matching envelope is just gorgeous! I don’t do this enough with my envelopes while I am creating the card, you have inspired me! xx
