Citrus butterflies



Love these butterflies and a super quick way to make a stunning card too.
For this card I started with a white base card and used a reverse butterfly die from memory box to cut the image.

I used another piece of white card and scribbled blobs or promarker colour on it in lime, yellow and orange.
I then adhered the coloured card to the inside of the die cut card and the card is finished.                                                                                                        I can add whatever sentiment I like and I could have added ribbon but I love it just as it is ,it reminds me of fresh spring days and just makes me smile.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;-

Unicorn challenge - clean and simple

the craft barn - clean and simple

the crafter's cafe - inspired by a song
(I just had the theme song from the old TV series with Wendy Craig Butterflies running through my head whilst making this card)

little red wagon - clean and simple

Suzy Bees -a touch of spring

less is more - citrus

hiding in my craft room - spring colours


Artbymiram - anything goes

stempelsonne-anything goes

What a fab design, so stylish and just the right pop of colour behind the white. Great work!

This is a beautiful card, decidedly CAS too, but as we only allow a maximum of five challenges which may be combined, sadly this lovely creation cannot be considered for showcasing.
DO please join us again!
Thanks so much

Such an absolutely gorgeous card, but as Chrissie has pointed out the maximum number of combined challenges for showCASing has been exceeded. However thank you so much for sharing this and I really hope we see you again at Less is More next week.
