Best Wishes Butterflies

     I have to admit that this is one of my favorite dies although I think I've only used it two or three times.  Still, it's so versatile and can be used to do just one butterfly, the three lower ones or all of them.  This time I did all of them and cut the entire card front.  It's a pretty simple card design but looks very complex.

     This die, by Memory Box, cuts out everything you see in purple, leaving behind the actual, pale-periwinkle, card front.  It's a 'negative' die.  I added a leftover piece of purple (my favorite color!) CS behind the butterfly openings so that the color shows through.

     The two little black butterflies are from another Memory Box die set and were cut from yet another scrap piece, a very small one this time.  The sentiment is hand stamped but don't ask me who made the stamp because it's been around so long that all the identifiers have been worn off.   I debated about adding ribbon or a bow but decided to leave it as is for a more CAS look.
