Butterflies doubled up

Hi guys,

I decided to have a go at making two completely different cards using a butterfly die I had in my stash (I think it was a free gift with a magazine).

 I created a CAS general card and a more layered New Home card.

The pair are being entered into the following challenges:
Twofer card challenge #25 Spring animals

 This more layered card was created on a classic blue base card (the Pantone colour of 2020). I used glitter washi tape to make the banner. I then took some patterned papers from my scrap box (meaning that I have no idea what brand it is) and used this along with the die-cut (cut on X-cut glitter self-adhesive paper) a washi tape circle and the sentiment topper to layer the card according to the AHSC sketch.
I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
TIOT - Home Sweet Home

For my CAS card I used the same glitter paper for the die-cut, but then I added this on its own and simply stamped the sentiment firstly in grey and then in black ink. I heat embossed over the black ink using a red (cherry scented) embossing powder.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
SimplyLessisMoore #415 Colour challenge

Thanks for looking,

  12. Such a pretty CAS card and that was a clever way to incorporate all 3 colours. The two colours stamped on the sentiment complements the main die cut. Thank you for joining us at Less is More xx
