You Mean So Much to Me

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #155 combined with one of the April challenges  at Heart2Heart Challenges "Theme Four" 
Please click on any of the highlighted challenges to see the many inspirations and creative designs from each of the Design Team members and the many submissions to these challenges. 

My first thought was go to Cricut Design Space to pick out a frame for the cut corners and this was the frame I selected from CTMH - Art Philosophy. The frame was modified, welded and cut from design paper and a second frame cut with cardstock, a little larger, for the layering.  A second frame was cut imitating the larger frame changing to a square frame, and cut again in white and a little larger one in thistle for layering.     

Banner across card was cut from design paper, white and thistle cardstock, adhered each piece, then adhered to large frame and cut on the end to match the cut of the panel.  Small square panel was adhered to card with 3D thin foam tape.  One butterfly glued to panel and tip of wings rolled, while the second butterfly cut was adhered to center and pearls added for body.  Sentiment stamped, fussy-cut,glued to cardstock and again fussy-cut to take same shape as sentiment.  Pearls added to each of the four corners on the larger and smaller frames.  
Theme for Heart to Heart Challenge - Four:  My card had 4 corner die-cuts and 4 pearls on both the smaller and larger frames.
