Fearless Butterflies - Partial Die-Cuts

I'm sorry I didn't post yesterday - life happens and I just did not get a card made this weekend for yesterday.  (Okay - I admit it, I have a backlog of cards from years past that I COULD post, but I didn't have the time.)  I did spend some time organizing my craft space and will post a few of the things I'm doing later.  I'm excited about how I'm organizing my paper!   Sounds weird I know, but I'm sure at least a few of you will understand how exciting that can be.

Today's card is for the Tuesday color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  The colors this week are brought to us by Karen and they are beautiful:
For my card I used butterflies.  Perhaps I was subliminally influenced by the graphic.
I purchased these dies recently and really wanted to use them.  A quick tip - you receive two of each butterfly die and I did not realize that one partially cuts (see photo) and one fully cuts.  Let's just say I messed up my first attempt.
I used the challenge colors under each butterfly and for their bodies which are covered in Wink of Stella to add just a little sparkle.
The sentiment was chosen because I know someone who is in a delicate state right now.  I'd like to inspire her to move on.  Butterflies, although appearing delicate, are incredibly strong.  Just look at the monarchs and their migration!

I hope you enjoyed today's post.  I will be posting Friday - I am not sure about this Thursday.  I hope to get back to my regular schedule next week.
