Butterfly Circle Birthday Card (Slimline)

This card has an interesting story... I purchased a slimline circle die (the background) and cut it out a few days ago. I didn't realize that the die has no outside border - none. It only cuts the circles! I cut 4 of them - one in white and the other three in shades of turquoise to use for the background. I used a separate stitched rectangle die to cut around the white circle piece. 

Using the little circles, I placed them in all the openings in a repeating pattern. That piece was then mounted on a few other rectangles, all die cut. 

The butterfly is from a set of dies that will be available through Close To My Heart as of May 1 - they are stunning! There are two sizes and the one seen here is the large one. I die cut the background and then the second die twice - once in Lagoon cardstock and a second time from holographic paper. I paper pieced the holographic paper inside the second die cut to give a shiny effect. 

The butterfly was mounted on the card front and I added a narrow birthday sentiment. Much work - but so worth it!
