Stacked Butterfly Birthday Wishes Card

This is a "bits from the box" card I've made.  I started making it ages ago at a Make and Take evening, didn't finish it on the night and it's languished in my unfinished projects box ever since.   A little while ago I said I'd like to make a "bits from the box" card once a week - yeah, not doing too well on that, must try harder!

I used Shimmer White CS for the A6 card base and the pretty patterned papers are SU! Twitterpated DSP.  After gluing the paper strip at the side I added a Riding Hood Red die cut border and tied some Island Indigo twine around.  I die cut 3 butterflies from patterned papers, sponged the edges with Island Indigo ink, tied on some twine for antennae and added a teeny Baja Breeze button.  I've placed half Dimensionals under the wings to keep them popped up.  A sentiment and two teeny butterflies finished off the card front.

Here's the inside and the envelope with more pretty butterflies.

This is lovely, hard to believe it's been half finished for so long, I think you should have a whole unfinished bits from your box week, I bet you'd make some amazing creations!!
