More Than One Fold

This post is late due to the internet being up and down with the high winds which makes our connection keep dropping out .
It's a new challenge over with the butterflies.
#93 Butterflies + X is for Xtra fold and or the colour Peacock  Blue/ Green.
Here is my inspiration cards for you. Better late than never.

First up is an Easel Card using an image from  Hunkydory's little book of 'Jewelled Butterflies.
I have teamed it up with  lovely deep blue turquoise card stock folded to make the easel shape
which you can see in this sideways shot. I layered up using a slightly deeper shade of blue and to make the platform so that the card would stay propped open. I had a rummage in my sequin boxes and found just the right shades of green and blue to use and joy of joys they actually stayed stuck where I put them too.  Happy Birthday was die cut using an Xcut sentiment die and a scrap of blue glitter paper which I then attached to a piece of light green patterned card for contrast. 

Second card is called a Fold out card. Here I have used complementing  images from two  decoupage popper pads  by Creative Crafting World that I won some time ago in blogland from the lovely Sue T.
I fussy cut another image to just show the inside panel of flowers and then adhered to a piece of matching  card the same as the base cardstock using 3D pads to give a little height and definition.
Butterfly from my stash.

Hope you can join in. The challenge runs for the usual two weeks and will close on Tuesday 30th Jan.
