SUOC70 - The Theme is Butterflies!

We have another fun challenge this week over at SUO Challenges! I mean, who doesn't like butterflies, right?! They're like little flowers that can fly. And what a timely challenge, too, because the "Best of" stamp set for April was butterflies!

I went with an unusual color combination (for me, anyway), because I really wanted to make the butterfly the focus of the card.  And, because thank you cards always seem to be in short supply around here, I made it a TY card.  Naturally, there was a little bling added, because that's just what it had to have. There are a couple of sneak peeks on there, too, for you sharp-eyed observers!

I hope you'll join us in the challenge this week.....it's so easy to make a card with butterflies because Stampin' Up! has so many products* that are butterfly-related!

  1. How beautiful! You've gotta love a blingy butterfly and I really love how the textured core-dinations paper turned out with that embossing folder. Very cool.

    1. Natalie, I'm really excited that the Core'dinations will be available in ALL the colors in the new catty!!!

  2. I like this colour combo the browns make everything pop :) hugs Nikki

    1. Thanks, Nikki! It looks so much better IRL. 😊

  3. Great job Cindy!! Love the browns and greens- they do make the butterfly pop!! So thrilled to be able to design with you at SUO Challenges :-)
