Big Beautiful Butterfly for TTTC#5

I'm adding an extra post in today so that I can enter the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #5! Here is the board that inspired my card ~

I picked the middle horizontal row. I die-cut my butterfly from Butterflies Thinlits and the Crushed Curry crackled paint paper from the Color Theory DSP Stack. The butterfly sits on a panel that is also one of the Color Theory papers, and I layered it on Whisper White to give it definition from the Daffodil Delight cardstock base.

The sentiment "Celebrate..." is from Beautiful You. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Pearl Basic Jewels fulfilled the pearls requirement.

On the inside, I stamped a greeting from Birthday Blossoms and two butterflies from Butterfly Basics and Garden in Bloom.

Hop over to and see all of the entries. There are as many different ideas as could be possible! And if you hurry, you can play along. But if you miss the cut-off time, there will be another challenge to participate in on Thursday!
