hello, hello & hello . . .

This week's challenge at BBTB2 is "things that fly in nature".  I found a butterfly image on the Picturesque  cartridge and decided to make a shaped card.  For the card base I welded the two butterfly shapes together in Design Studio using the shadow feature. 



I used the base feature to cut the vellum and the base shift to cut the purple cardstock.I embossed the vellum to add a little bit more texture to the card.


I stamped the "hello, hello & hello" sentiment and hand cut it out leaving just a little bit of white around the stamping and used pop up dots to attach it to the card.  I stamped the butterfly on the inside of the card to finish it off - there was just to much white.


Thanks for stopping by.
