I used SU Basic Black as the base. I layered with white linen cs. I used my SU Matt Stack to pierce 3 holes to add 3 mini black brads along the side. I layered with SU basic black cs, then again with the white linen cs. I used SU Summer Sun cs, ran it through the CB Swiss Dots folder. I had a piece of window sheet (I think that's what it's called), someone gave to me, cut it to size to fit the Summer Sun cs. I used Zots on each corner to adhere the window sheet, then added medium white pearls to the corners. I used the new MS Butterfly punch all over the page twice on the white and summer sun cs. I used a hand punch with tiny holes, punched 12 dots & adhered them to the butterflies. (It wasn't easy) I also added mini adhesive mini pearls for the body of the butterfly. I ran a piece of yellow dotted ribbon through a small ribbon slider, luckily the ribbon matched the card stock.
This is my 1st QFTD challenge, it was fun.
Things I changed: colors, window sheet, cuttlebug folder

WELCOME to the QFTD challenge Connie. You did such a terrific interpretation of my card. I'm a scared of using those window sheets, but I got the nerve up on this particular card. Your colors are beautiful, the ribbon/slider treatment looks great and who can't love butterflies? Thanks so much for taking the extra time to make this beauty in my honor. I really appreciate it and hope you will continue with the challenge. It's so much fun! Who knows, maybe one day you will join the Royal Family!!!
