Butterfly Friendship

Happy Monday everyone!  It's challenge day over at Paper Playtime and Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges.  Now, I normally make a different project for each challenge, but between my work schedule and playing with my Cameo, I kind of ran out of time, so today I have one project that showcases both challenges.  Janis challenged the Paper Playtime team to make a project with MORE THAN ONE FOLD and she challenged the Pause Dream Enjoy team to make a FRIENDSHIP project.  Here is what I came up with:

This is a different style of project for me.  I usually do cute, but I think this is more elegant.  The centre step card is a file I got from the Silhouette Store.  The butterfly was a free SVG file I found on line.  The paper is all from an old CTMH set and the ink is Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  The sentiment is from a beautiful Flourishes stamp set called Sweet Days of Summer.  

Please hop over to Paper Playtime and Pause Dream Enjoy challenges, see what the rest of the Design Divas came up with, and play along with us.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!

A challenge or two:
Brown Sugar - step or easel card
Stampin for the Weekend - friendship
Cute Card Challenge - butterfly kisses
Creative Moments - things with wings
Make it Monday - anything goes
Melonheadz Friends - fancy folds

A la prochaine...
