C4C-376 Butterfly Pivot Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday so that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our March 2017 Hostess is Frances Byrne, and our Guest Designer is Birgit Norton. You can see Birgit's Blog HERE.  
Here is Frances' challenge:  Tuesday the 14th March is both Moth-er Day (focusing on Moths) and Learn About Butterflies Day. So for our challenge this week include a Butterfly or Moth on your card. Bonus points if you include a flower on your card to celebrate Plant a Flower Day tomorrow (12th March)

I couldn't resist using Karen Burniston's Butterly Pivot card, and some fun printed paper from my stash. I often cut my card bases wider than I need, score then fold the excess to the inside. This time however,
 the excess patterned paper was folded to the outside and I tucked a scalloped border underneath it on the front.

I added a vellum layer from the Butterfly Accessories to the butterfly layers that come with the Butterfly Pivot card.

When the card is opened, the butterflies from the front and back pivot to the inside where you get to see the floral pattern that was folded to the outside.

I waited for WEEKS for Lawn Fawn's 'Happy Happy' to be in stock and shipped - it comes with three different Happy stamps and dies, plus additional words. You are going to see a lot of that set - it's perfect for so many different occasions!

Here is a top view of the card ...

... and the back.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C376.
