Another Card in Navy, White, and Yellow

 I created this card using a new Geo-Die that I bought last weekend at
Cottage Stampers. I did a double cut with die on  navy CS backed with white and then folded the cut edges and  layered it on a circle of Wild Dandelion CS.  Layered this on Arglye embossed  white CS mat. Attached a butterfly that I stamped with navy ink on yellow CS and cut out...added some highlight with  embossing marker.  Added to card base of the yellow with ribbons, punched butterfly, and some dots(buttons)  stamped and punched with a hole punch. I used colors from Stamp TV challenge and a sketch from Critter Sketch Challenge but I had date wrong for the sketch ended last week but this card fits their challenge for this nothing wasted.

I am not sure if I really like this card. I think it is a bit too much ...may redo with a different element rather than the stamped butterfly...maybe a simple circle with a textfor the center of the geo die. But for now I will use for these challenges .
Thanks for stopping by! Theresa

Fabulous card Theresa, stunning colourway and such a beautiful butterfly - I love how the double cutting and folding back of the die shape - I only tried this once and failed miserably!!
