Butterfly Kisses...

This card is actually oval shaped - though this scan doesn't differentiate the card from the background well. The frame is one by Whipper Snapper Designs that I stamped with Distress Ink on DP (very pale lavender horizontal stripes) glued to the front of A2 CS.  Because the frame was stamped over the edge of the fold on the left side, I then was able to cut around the  rest of the frame and maintain a normal opening card.  The image is a Sassy Cheryl digi colored with Copics, cut out, sculpted and mounted on foam tape.  One butterfly is stamped directly on the background, the other two stamped on scrap paper, cut out and mounted 3-D.  The banner sentiment is secured with a brad.

This card should be eligible for the following
