Butterfly Kisses

Today I have my butterfly DT card for Cute Card Thursday to share with you.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Whiff of Joy with Katharina offering a choice of stamp for our prize winner.

Now to be honest, I already had the card made up with the diecut patterned layer and trellis and was wondering what I could add to it that wouldn't detract from the pretty embossing and cut work on the top layer.  So, I thought a butterfly with equally interesting cut out areas might work, and then just a few simple flowers and leafy sprays to finish things off - tah dah!  The Flutter By Wednesday is an open challenge this week so I can enter my card with them, and at Creative Inspirations it's anything goes!

The diecuts are all by Marianne design, the scallop base and lattice embossed layer are from LR0242 Anja's Squares and the paper I have used is from the Marianne design paper bloc called Pretty Butterflies.  The Butterfly is LR0115, the flowers are from LR0107, and the leafy sprays are from LR0192.

I am going to send the card to Jason's girlfriend, Maria, to thank her for making me a fabulous birthday cake.  I love the garden theme, and the spicy sponge inside was delicious too!  I've been trying to add a picture so you can see but it comes out sideways on and I can't seem to change it - it's ok on my pc so I'm not sure what Mr Blogger is doing .. .. but if you tilt your head you'll get the idea!


  1. The butterfly looks super with your trellis work on the card & I love your beaded effect for the body.
    Belated Birthday Wishes too - that looks super & I'm glad Jason & his girlfriend marked it for you.
    Take care & much love
