Paper Pro's May 2017 Challenge Card

Good morning friends

It's time once again for the Paper Pro's Designer Challenge, and this month Caz issues the challenge:  "A few of my favourite things". Wow - what a fun challenge!!!

I chose Karen Burniston's Butterfly Pivot die set. I always like butterflies but especially this time of year when it means warmer weather is finally here. While flipping through some patterned papers to use, I saw this one and knew it would work as a birthday card for a friend. As usual, once I choose the patterned paper the rest of the card just fell together.

Loving these Stampin' Up doily's. When they hit the retired list, I snagged two more packages. Can't believe they are retiring them! I added some stickers from my stash and used glossy accents on the butterfly bodies so they are raised and shiny.

It's hard to see in the photo below, but I used glitter paste and a butterfly stencil on the right edge. You may have to click on the photo if you wish to see it larger. It sparkles and shines when the card is moved and the glitter catches the light. It's so pretty!

The butterflies pivot into the centre when the card is opened - such a cool feature of the Pivot Cards.  I added smaller butterflies from Karen Burniston's Butterfly Accessories at the top ...

... and more glitter paste stencilling.

Finally, here is a top view.

The Paper Pro's (formerly Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge Team) continue these challenges as a group, but they are completely optional. Some month's we get lots of participants, other months just a few. It's all good - and I love that the Team has chosen to stay in contact this way.
