Butterfly birthday

Today I have another butterfly birthday card, it does seem to be one of my go-to cards probably because you can change it up by the pattern of the DSP behind the butterfly for a quick and easy card.

This time I used one of the newer DSP for my background.  I thought all the colors reflect a butterfly's gorgeous coloring.  I adhere the DSP to the backside of the separate front panel (that has the die cut-out) then attached the die cut butterfly just in the center of its body, so the wings are free to move. As you can see I framed it in a solid color cs.  Last time I made this card, I used a different technique for the die cutting, but this is much easier and has the same end result.

Here's a close up of the wings.

And a close up of the inside sentiment.

That's it for today, thanks for looking, would love to hear from you.
P.S. wish I had some glitter for the butterfly wings, but my supplies are quite limited where I'm at.

Nancy I love your butterfly card and the polka dot DSP is too cute! Not sure what the source is yet, but I'll find it! You are so right about the same effect for the butterfly, but with much less stress and work. Only a card "maker" ... "might" see the difference. I only know because you told me! Ha.
