Teal Butterflies

I made this card for the Butterfly Challenge 'T for Texture and/or Teal', using inspiration from a card by Carol Lampard in Die-cutting Essentials magazine.  I'm also entering the Cuttlebug Mania 'Butterflies' challenge and the Alphabet Challenge 'E for Embossing Folders'.  The card is from my snippets drawer so I'm also hopping across to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white linen
Dies: Tattered Lace ' Mini Butterfly' ,Apple Blossom 'Flourish Heart' (magazine freebie), Creative Dies 'Thank You' (magazine freebie)
Embossing: Floral Border (magazine freebie)
Snippets: Dark and pale teal matt card

I embossed a strip of dark teal card, trimmed the edges, layered it onto pale teal card and attached it to the lower edge of the card.  I die cut two Flourish Hearts from dark teal card (one was just the top section of the heart) and the two butterflies from pale teal card.  The large heart was attached to the left side of the card, trimmed against the edge of the card and the embossed strip.  The upper section of the second heart was the attached and trimmed.  I inlaid the two pale teal butterflies and attached small hearts amongst the flourish.  I die cut Thank You from dark teal card and attached it to the upper edge of the card.  To finish I attached a Tattered Lace mini butterfly below the sentiment.
