SUO 215

SUO has a theme challenge: Birthdays.

I thought I'd try out a new fold for this challenge. This pretty little centre panel easel fold is one that I learned from the amazingly talented Bronwyn Eastley of Addinktive Designs.

I've not really used Balmy Blue much before but a friend uses it a lot, so I thought I'd give it a go with Granny Apple Green for this card. I love it... and I know that Balmy Blue will be used a lot more from now on!

The background for the butterflies uses stamps from Beauty Abounds and I've used a circle of vellum to ground the butterflies further. The greeting is from Itty Bitty Birthdays.

Here it is, closed down and ready for the envelope.

If you live anywhere in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up demonstrator, I'd love to help you with ideas and Stampin' Up products. Please message me through my Facebook page, linked in the sidebar of this blog or leave a comment below. 

And, of course, you can shop with me from anywhere in New Zealand by clicking any of the products pictured below or the SHOP NOW button in the sidebar of this blog or you can message me.

Update: Delighted to be a Top 3 Pick at SUO Challenge.
