Butterfly Wishes Card Set

Hello, friends!  I'm here today to share a set of cards I made during this rainy week!

I'm entering these cards in four current challenges:

(1)  City Crafter Challenge Week #422: Butterflies -- this is my first time playing along at this challenge and I'm so glad I found it!

(2)  The Paper Players #402 - A Clean and Simple Challenge from Nance -- we are challenged to use negative space on our cards.  I used the negative space made by my die-cut butterflies on colored card bases.

(3)  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes!  (I love Anything Goes!)

(4)  Addicted to Stamps and More #302 - Make Your Mark -- I made my mark with a bold sentiment stamped in black!

I wanted to have a variety of birthday cards in my stash, but I really loved this specific design.  I decided to make a set of cards using the same design but in several different colors.

For each card, I die cut a white panel using the WPlus9 "Sunshine Layers" die, then stamped the WPlus9 "Happy Wishes" sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next, I die cut the Simon Says Stamp "Paulina" butterfly outline on the white die cut panel, then layered it onto a colored card base so the color showed through.  I added a white die cut Simon Says Stamp "Leanna" butterfly die over the open butterfly, attaching it with glue only at the center and finished it with a matching enamel dot.  

Here are the individual cards:

I am really happy with how these turned out!  I'm also happy to have a set of birthday cards on hand in a variety of colors.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
