Another Memory Box Butterfly Challenge Entry

Today's card uses more of the Gelatos background papers that I shared last week.

The paper used for the  base of the card was a gift from a friend. The paper doily was a left over from a card that was made last month. The black and green glossy papers were snippets from my scraps.

I used two Memory Box dies to make this card. The "Hello Script" die was cut from the Gelatos colored watercolor paper and three more cuts were made from card stock. These  layers were glued together  and then placed back in the negative space on the paper.

The Memory Box "Willoughby Butterfly Wings" die was used to cut the butterfly from the watercolor paper. Instead of removing the butterfly from the paper, I placed a large piece of packing tape on the back side of the butterfly so the tiny pieces would all stay in place and  wouldn't fall out.  I trimmed the paper down so a portion of the butterfly wings were above the Gelatos colored strip of paper. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Pixie's Snippets Playground Challenge # 181 & 182
The Memory Box Challenge #1

Thanks for visiting my blog today and special Thanks for any comments that you leave.
Have a terrific day!
Ta Ta For Now,


  1. Super card, Kathy. Lovely design and I love how you've kept the butterfly intact. xx

  2. And here's me thinking that you glued them all back in separately. Lol Looks most effective. Just spotted this new challenge so must get my skates on and make an entry. Hugs Mrs A. .

  3. Wonderful card Kathy - and great use of snippets! I spotted the MB challenge earlier on today and am busily thinking of what to make to enter :) This beauty will take a lot of beating though - very clever to use the whole butterfly and of course I adore the camouflaged sentiment word.

  4. Kathy, I love your inlays! This is absolutely beautiful! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your wonderful comment. I hope to see you again soon xxx

  5. Oh, I can tell I'm going to like it over here. This is such a gorgeous card with it's lacy doily and gelatoed (I'm pretty sure I just made that word up) background. Stunning!!! Thank you so much for making my day by becoming a follower!! I've definitely returned the favor and can't wait to see what you make next.

  6. So pretty! I love the background,too!
