Happy Birthday - Double Trouble Challenge #108 "Frame It" partnering with Dies R Us "Spring/Flowers

This is my Design Team Card for Double Trouble #108 "Frame It"  using  Twisted Sister's optional twist to "include flowers and/or butterflies" and sharing with our partner at Dies R Us # 191 "Spring/Flowers" theme.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #469 came through with just the sketch I needed to fulfil the Double Trouble "Frame It" challenge.  The frame was made with a blended blue patterned paper with a stitched die and adhered to card base. Another frame with scalloped stitched circles was cut using a pretty small floral patterned paper given to me by a friend at least 3-4 years ago for a special project.  That project never materialized and I'm glad I found this paper in my stash for another special project.    

Well, the card base and background cuts were the easy part. My butterfly dies, stamps, patterned paper cuts were cut and my choices were not working for me. Going through my butterfly dies I found a die that was a flair of different size butterflies.  A number of different butterfly dies, and/or stamp dies were cut using patterned papers, vellum and cardstock... none of them came together.  

Went back to my butterfly dies and found this one butterfly flair die which had variable size butterflies, cut using a patterned paper from "You Are Enough" CTMH paperpack, perfect.  Separated the butterflies from the flair and cut one more flair using the back of the patterned paper for a shadow, adhered direct to the background and added the patterned paper cuts using 3D thin foam tape for dimension and curled the wings of the butterfly. Used a couple of the flairs for a butterfly trail.  Sentiment "Happy Birthday" was stamped in the center circle.

Sue this is so Springy and cute! I love how you added the matching little elements on the inside of the card too. It's always fun when we can use a product that's been sitting for so long waiting to be used. turned out great on this project! :)
