Scrapy Land's Challenge #85

Hello crafty friends,

Welcome to the start of a new Scrapy Land challenge... number 85:

This is a very simple but bold card.  I used Cheery Lynn Designs Exotic Butterfly as the star of my card.  I die cut her from blue glitter card stock.  I also die cut the Happy Birthday from this Die-Versions Corner Concepts die from the same blue glitter card stock.  My card background was a piece of striped pattern paper that I glued onto the card base on an angle.  I opted not to add any sequin or nuvo drops, because I wanted the butterfly to the focal point.

Thanks for stopping bye.... please join us for this challenge.  The winners... one selected randomly and one selected by the Design Team will both receive a $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.  Until next time... take care.

I'm entering this card in the following Challenges:
TIME OUT Challenge #104 BOLD, which runs 3/1 to 3/14
Classic Design Team Open Challenge #23, which runs 3/1 to 3/27
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes, which runs until 3/7
Always Happy Birthday, which runs 3/1 to 3/30
