Purple & Blue..a Butterfly for You!

So today's card has been combined with colour challenges over at Late Night Stampers challenge 209 which is a blue theme and then by adding just a touch of purple I was able to add it into another challenge over at Sketchy Colors.  This is the first time for Sketchy Colors.

The big thing about this post is that it is a recreation of a tutorial over at Stampin Fun & Friends, Sweet Sentiments.  Robbie Rubala has given us excellent instructions on making a spinner card. 
Along with the card is a template and instructions on actually making a box with a heart embellishment on the top.  I changed it out to accommodate the butterfly from the card.

You will notice that the papers I used today were the same papers as I used for my challenge card yesterday, trying to use up scraps as I work.

In order to make the butterfly look more 3D I cut out three from the DSP and a 4th one from the blue CS that I used as a base.  Folding two of the butterflies in half and then gluing them to the base butterfly and the top butterfly.  Very easy to do and makes an impact on the total look.

I hope that you will take the time to join us at Stampin Fun and Friends, we still have the whole month of February left to play.

Thanks for stopping by.
