Butterfly in Blue

My friends know how I love butterflies and this die from IO is fabulous. I cut it from glitter paper and black card and layered them to get a 3d effect.   I had the scraps of paper and the tools still out from yesterday's project so used the same papers with a different layout and butterfly for the IO challenge, Celebrate You. This cards celebrates things I love most on a card: butterflies, layers and dimension.  I used a tip from Jennifer Mcquire and each of the layers is popped up with fun foam.  I just cut the foam with the size smaller die and adhered it with score tape.  You can't see the dimension very well,but there are five layers that are popped up. The Scrappyland chllenge is favorite color combination.  I have many colors I love using, but I am a monochromatic gal.  I love seeing bright bold contrasting colors in a design, but when I try it, the results are shaky.

I used the following IO products 

Open Scroll Butterfly

The Sentiment is CL43

I will enter the following challenges.
