Golden butterflies

Today's card is sort of a snippets spectacular, with every bit of paper coming from the snippets file. There are two different gold snippets on the butterflies, which provided some nice variation on the butterflies. (the die is a yard-sale find, and I am not sure who made it.) The graph paper-style panel was the only bit I had of that, and I thought it worked so well with the butterflies I decided to keep it even after stamping the sentiment at a wonky angle.

This card is for these challenges:
CRAFT #415 -- birthday
Butterfly Challenge #78 -- gold
Cuttlebug Mania -- Have Wings, will fly
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday -- Going Dotty
Moving Along with the Times #45 -- Butterflies
Catch the Bug -- Anything Goes
Pixie's Snippet Playground #279 -- use snippets
Word Art Wednesday #282 -- Anything Goes
Craftyhazlenut's Patterned Paper Challenge -- use patterned paper


  1. Lovely card Sandy! And super use of all those snippets. Love the butterfly die - I wish we had yard sales over here, I have a ton of stuff I need to let go at some point and face to face in a yard (or as we do have car boot) sale is much more fun than doing it online.

    Thank you for coming to play in the Snippets Playground :)

  8. Great job on the gold butterflies. I like the grid background. I didn't even notice the wonky greeting. It fits with the butterflies since they never do a straight line anyway.
