Butterfly Tri-Shutter Card

After spending some time cleaning up my craft room this afternoon, I sat down at my desk to try one of the tri-shutter cards that I've seen around lately. I basically followed the directions from Robin, seen here. I changed one measurement - instead of cutting the top and bottom edges at 1 inch from the long edge, I cut at 1 1/2 inches. Making this fun card gave me the opportunity to finally use my Sizzix Beautiful Butterflies die and Bella Bleu designer series paper (which makes a return appearance in the new SU! catty). I'll probably go back and add a sentiment, but here it is thus far. I used Not Quite Navy card stock for the card base, with some Chocolate Chip as a highlight. The body of the butterflies are small clear rhinestone brads with the butterfly head being a medium sized one. I added the antennae using some silver beading wire I happened to have, wrapping it around my paper piercing tool twice before cutting. I hope you like it!!
