Another Butterfly Card

I noticed this card on Angie Kennedy Juda's blog and was immediately impressed with it's simplicity.  Check out her blog at Chic'n Scratch, it is full of great ideas.
This is a Tent Topper Card.  I have made several cards using the same layout with different combinations of designer papers and cardstock.  They all turned out great!

Floral District Designer Series Paper, Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade. 

Sneak Peek Alert!  Strawberry Crush 2013-2014 In Color and Quatrefancy Specialty DSP.

Perfect Polka Dots DSP and Real Red cardstock

Patio Party DSP and Primrose Petals

This card will fit in a Medium Stampin' Up envelope.  The card base measures 4 1/4" X 8" and was scored at 4".  The DSP card front measures 4" X 4".  The topper was made by layering two of the Window Pane framelits- the 3rd and 4th in the set.  I used the Festive Piercing Pack to add detail to the background piece.  A Butterfly image from the Best of Butterflies set was stamped on Whisper White using Staz' On Black.  A sentiment from Delightful Dozens was stamped below the butterfly.  I used a sponge dauber to add a little color to the butterfly.  A rhinestone was added to the butterfly body and ribbon was added below the topper.
Hint:  Use your Grid Paper to help line up the topper on the card.  Place the card base in the lower left hand corner of the grid paper.  Add adhesive to the bottom of the topper and line it up on the card base using the 5 1/2 " measurement on the grid paper to be sure the card will fit in your envelope.
