Butterfly Birthday Wishes

Hi there!

So much inspiration in this fortnight's inspiration photo at Time Out Challenges! The split butterfly portrait in the background was the first element that caught my eye, and I immediately knew the direction I wanted to go with my design. Finally a chance to use this beautiful butterfly gate fold cutting file from the Silhouette store!

I used :

  • Butterfly Gate fold cutting file : Design # 161059 in the Silhouette store
  • Distress ink : Picked raspberry & Spun Sugar for watercolor smooshing
  • Tag : Design # 59913 with my own digi sentiment (shared below)
  • Rhinestones & gold string

Right click and save if you wish to 😊

Challenges :

Time out challenges  ~ Inspiration taken from the butterfly, pink flowers and gold accents

Seize the birthday ~ Anything goes birthday

Simon says stamp Wednesday challenge ~ Anything goes


Thanks for visiting me today!

This is just stunning, Hannelie! That butterfly, in combination with the gate fold is just incredible. What a fabulous take on that TO photo inspiration. I love how you've picked up the pink from the flowers for the inside of your card. Yep. I think you've got a winner here. Simply gorgeous. Love this. xo Bev

The intricate die cut design of your gatefold card is stunning - I love the bold black combined with the soft smooshed background - and the little touches of gold. Great take on the inspiration photo - thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Jill

Striking and beautiful, Hannelie ... puts me in mind of an elegant, velvet, little black dress with delicate silk inserts ... it's gorgeous! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out with this lovely! Hugs, Anita :)
