Butterfly Birthday Card

SSS Bundle of Stitched Dies, SSS Sky Blue Ink, SSS Sky Blue card stock, #FlourishtinaHello everyone and Happy Sunday!
The new challenge starts over Cupcake Inspirations challenge and I popping up to share my Butterfly Birthday Card. For this week our sponsor Butterfly Reflections Ink gives 20$ certificate to one lucky winner. The colors for this challenge are – SKY, GRAPHITE, LIME.
CIC310 I started my card from die cutting the white base using SSS Bundle of Stitched Dies. For this card I have got my inspirations from Freshly Made Sketches.
FMS Final 186-001I stenciled dots with SSS Surf Blue ink and Heidi Swapp stencil. As we have to use a graphite color in this challenge I added circles in different size, using Winnie & Walter stamp set.
The next step was a butterfly.  I cut 2″ butterfly image from Indie Art cartridge using my Explore from Granny Smith TE paper. And than I spent quite a time to cut same butterfly from vellum. The machine didn’t want to cut vellum properly. But I am not from those who give up :). I made a trick. I taped vellum to the green card stock using Tombow Removable Adhesive

    I love your Butterfly Birthday card. It is beautiful! I can’t find that die on SSS. I found blueprint dies but not with that stitching> Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.
