Acetate Again!

It is  a new Theme
#47 Butterflies + O is for Over the Edge
  (so edge cut on project to overhang or the overhang method when cutting a die when the image goes over the edge as on a circle die).
#47 Butterflies + U is for Undulating
(so image or embellishment on  either wires or acetate strip so that it moves on the card.)
It 's a double billing as we are down
to the last two letters of the current Alphabet theme.
My Inspiration card is to show you
what I made using acetate to make the movement.
No acetate on the front this time!
The surprise is on the inside.

When you open up the card you find
this array of butterflies bobbing around!
They are all attached to separate strips
of acetate which are secured behind
the die cut flower border and  sandwiched
between the front and back fold of the base.

The die cut  flower border
is  Craft Essentials
Meadow border - DIOB0079
which I have coloured with my Graph'it Markers.
The butterflies are all pre cut on a printed sheet
called 'Shabby Chic' by Studiolight.
I used pink, green and blue cardstock for the base card.
Sentiment is a textured sticker from my stash.
Acetate strips were all left over snippets.
Design paper snippet and gems from my stash also.

Next week I will show you a card using wire!

Hope you will play along with the new challenge.
