Spring Butterfly

I made this card for Joan's Garden's challenge #9 found here. Here's the recipe for this week's challenge:

1. Use the colors orange and blue
2. Create a card with a spring theme
3. Use a die cut
4. Use a circle

I think I met all the requirements here. I used all dp from a K&Co Que Sera Sera paper pack. The 2 larger butterflies were cut with a Sizzix die, and the smallest one was done with a MS butterfly punch. I added Kaiser gemstones to the embossed top portion of the card, the smaller butterfly, and the sentiment - which was computer generated. The butterfly was embossed with a Texture Fades damask ef & a Sizzix ef, while the top portion of the card was done with another Sixxiz ef. The trim was from my stash.
That's it for me, I'm off to bed soon! Have a good one :)

Hi Carol, Yes you met all the requirements for this challenge. What a great card. The butterflies look terrific. I love the colors and the gems on the diamond crosses, just everything about it. Because of your gorgeous work with some of your other cards with that Sizzix diamond cross I ran out and got one. Your creations insprie me all the time. Keep up the great works of art.

Oh I just love this card!! Your butterfly just pops off the page with the white, orange and blue. I so want that Sizzix embossing folder that you used for the top panel. What EF is it?
