September Card Chain Challenge Reveal - Butterfly Day

The September reveal post is up at The Card Chain Challenge Blog.  Twenty nine people all over the world participated, by sending and receiving a card.   I sent a card to Lou in Australia and received a card from Jill in West Virginia!

Here's the card I sent to Lou.  

Each month we are given suggested colors, sketch, theme and technique - you can use one or all!
I used 'some' of the sketch (butterfly, dots and sentiment)  and the theme of Friendship.

The giant butterfly die is Perspective Butterfly from Tim Holtz/Sizzix.  I cut it in half to fit on the A2 card!  I brushed over the butterfly with Clear Glitter Wink of Stella so it sparkles in the light - but not in the photo!

You'll find all the cards exchanged in September at The Card Chain Challenge and if you'd like to join in for October - you have until Oct 6 to sign up - come join us!   See all the details here.

Paper:  White card base, Hibiscus Burst - Papertrey Ink, DP - Recollections/Michaels.
Accessories:  Perspective Butterfly Die - Tim Holtz/Sizzix, enamel dots - Altenew, printed sentiment strip, Clear Glitter Wink of Stella.
