Hello everyone!  I’m here today with a new challenge that I’m participating in and its called the Same but Different Challenge #6!!

logo_same+but+differentFrancine from 1001 CARTES and Anja from Little Butterfly Creations are the co-owners of this challenge and I have to tell you they are super fabulous at card making.  Their use of color is totally amazing.  I love seeing their cards.  Such inspiration!!

I first discovered this challenge a couple of months back when they first started, but I couldn’t participate, because I didn’t have the stamp set that Francine and Anja used.  I have it now, LOL!!

So, I’ve been dying to give this challenge a try so I put forth the effort to get the butterfly die that they used.

Lets take a look at the die we are using for this challenge.  They are using the “Chrissy Butterfly” from Simon Says Stamp:


When I looked on Simon Says Stamp website, I couldn’t find that die.  I reached out to Francine to let her know that I can’t find that die but that I did find a die that was very similar but it had a different name. I found the Paulina Butterfly Die.  Francine said that was fine, its the same die just a bit bigger.  Yayyy!!

Now take a look at my card:

Take your time to be happy

I love how my butterfly turned out.  I had a couple of watercolor pieces that I wasn’t sure what to do with and now look.  I found a use for it!!

So, let me make you laugh.  I thought this die partial die cut but it cut straight through.  So I had to improvise.  I just glued the center of the butterfly back in place so that it could appear as if it was partial die cut.  Nice right!!

My sentiment is from Create a Smile Botanical Love stamp set.

Lets take a closer look at my card:

I love how clean cut the butterfly looks.

This sentiment is so fitting for this card.  It matches the butterfly and the watercolor colors!
