Butterfly Just Because Card

While searching the internet today I found another card challenge.  Yeah!  This butterfly just because card was made for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I love the simplicity and the versatility of this sketch.  You might have noticed that I used polka dots again, so it also qualifies for The Paper Players challenge.  I used my go to colours of iris, and pool party.

Butterfly Just Because Card Supplies:  Cream cardstock, patterned paper by K & Company (Sweet Nectar designer mat pad, 30-657083), pool party cardstock by Stampin' Up!, Cricut machine, Cricut George & Basic Shapes cartridge, rubber stamp by Hampton Art (Windowpane Monarch, PS0520), rubber sentiment stamp by Studio 18 (Just Because, IG66871) iris chalk ink by Hero Arts, pool party baker's twine by Stampin' Up!, and stampin' dimesnionals.

I used the Cricut machine to cut out the 1.5" polka dot and shadow squares.  It saves some time when it comes to trimming and cuts everything the exact same size.
