Papercraft Star Challenge 84

Hello everyone!  I hope the week is going well for you all.  Ready for another challenge over at the Papercraft Star?  This week's challenge is to use a butterfly in your project.  For my project I tried a new style of card called a trifold shutter card.  I found a great tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers here.  I followed the instructions and matted some patterned papers from Echo Park in each segment.  The sentiment is from Verve which was die cut using a Spellbinders die.  For the embellishments I used some paper flowers along with some seam binding.  The butterflies were punched using a Martha Stewart punch and other coordinating papers also from Echo Park.  Now it's your turn show us your projects using butterflies.  Just link up by Monday 6:00 am EST for your chance to win some beautiful images from our sponsor The House Across The Bay!  Don't forget to stop by the other design team members blogs and check out their projects!


Paper:  Echo Park "This and That", Riding Hood Red, Whisper White cardstock from SU
Stamps:  Beautiful You by Verve
Ink:  Tuxedo Black from Memento, Rose Red from SU
Embellishments:  Spellbinders, Prima flowers, seam binding from 7 Gypsies, Martha Stewart butterfly punch
