Blue Grey Butterfly

I am not sure I like this card...I am sure I don't love this card. I am thinking it needs something but then anything I tried seem to look WAY too busy, so I left it alone.

The patterned paper is Close to My Heart. The butterfly was cut and embossed with my Cuttlebug Duo die set. Sentiment is Verve.

This card does, of course, work for several challenges:
  • Cardalicious asked for flowers, stars and stitching. I have been sitting on this challenge for almost two weeks. The butterfly paper itself actually has stars and flowers on it, but I also added the star rhinestones on two corners.
  • Color Chef asked for grey, light blue and brown. I was glad to find this CTMH paper with the blue and grey on it.
  • The sketch is this week's Sketches {by tamara} card sketch.
  • Truly Scrumptious asked for folds - meaning more than one. As you will see on the inside, I did the double pocket card fold so that I could use it as a gift card holder. One pocket for the gift card, the second for the tag where you can write your note to the recipient.
This could be the only card you see from me today. It is Race Day after all!!
