"Die Cuttin Diva's" Guest Designer

Today I'm the guest designer over at the Die Cuttin Diva's weekly challenge blog. Every week they have an amazing challenge where you create a card/project according to the guidelines and use a die cutting tool/cartridge/cut. So easy and so fun! And there are prizes to win too!

This week's challenge is "use white and pick either: pink, red, or purple".

If you know anything about me or my designs, you know I always gravitate towards things that are pink. Hehe. My wedding was pink pink pink, my blog is pink pink pink, and my daughters favorite color is pink pink pink. So I got to work right away gathering together some beautiful pink paper and getting inspired. I wanted to make a love card because it's so close to Valentine's Day. This is what I created.

 The card originally measured 6.5x5. But I trimmed half an inch off the height and width because I wanted my die cut embellishments to hang over the edges. 
 This cut is from "Lacy Labels". I cut it at 3.25.
It has lots of layers which I popped up with dimensional tape.
I thought the sentiment was perfect for this card.

I love making these layer butterfly elements. 
I cut 3 different butterflies from the Cricut cartridges "Florals Embellished", "Tie the Knot" and "Paper Lace" in a variety of sizes.
Then I layered them together and fastened them with a brad.
Bending the wings forward gives such wonderful dimension.

Thanks so much to the Die Cuttin Diva's for having me as a guest designer. Your blog is so fun and full of amazing inspiration.

I hope you are inspired to create your own card/project for this challenge. 

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day everyone!
