Butterfly Challenge #123

As mentioned in my previous post I've used the second of my freebie dies to make a card for the latest Butterfly Challenge.  The letter on the wheel this time is G with a choice of three colours and three themes with the added choice of making a gatefold card.  I've chosen to go with Granny Smith and Gold for the colours and gems for one of the themes also the butterfly of course.  I chose some green pearl card which in reality looks very much like granny smith colour although it appears more turquoise here (sigh)!  The floral corner die was used to cut into one of the corners and then I backed it with some darker designer paper.  The oval decorative tag was cut from some gold card and backed with more of the green before cutting an oval to stamp the wording.  I originally decided to pop two butterflies onto yesterday's card but in the end settled for one so the 'spare'  has been added here along with a gem.

Corner Die - freebie corner from Diecutting magazine current issue
Oval - Sue Wilson fancy tag Zoe
Butterfly - Sizzix die
Sentiment - free stamp given with a magazine set


  1. I like that corner flower die cut . I have given up trying to get certain colours to come out with my camera. Purple always comes out a turquoise colour with me. Love your butterfly. Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel with me this week. Hugs Mrs A.

  2. This card and your last post card are gorgeous, Val! I love the wonderful dimension, colors, and texture of both! Buying that magazine was worth it!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. A fabulous card Val, I love the corner die (I picked up that magazine this morning but managed to put it back before it started shouting buy me! buy me!.

  4. What a very pretty card, and likewise for your last post using these two gorgeous freebie dies and love the green and the yellow version equally I think, and such beautiful butterflies too. x

  5. Hi Val

    A beautiful collection of dies to make a lovely card .. .. funny how some colours just don't want to photograph.

    I always dread couples wanting mid-blue stationery as that never photographs well for me so sending them pictures is always a little scary.

    Love Jules xx

  6. Beautiful.
