CTD375 Happy Birthday

Hi all!  Happy Friday!  I’ve had some good crafting time this week and was able to play with the current Color Throwdown challenge.

Can I just say, I absolutely LOVE this die!  This is Butterfly Gown Girl – a Gina Marie Design die.  It’s such a beautiful die!  I cut it first from Basic Grey (SU) and then cut the skirt primarily from scraps of Orange Zest, New Leaf and Harvest Gold (all PTI).  I glued my girl down to a panel of Neenah Solar White {cut with Blueprints 13, of course} and then added in the butterflies to the openings.  The sentiment is from MFT You’re the Sweetest and I stamped it in VersaFine Onyx and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I added three free-flying butterflies from the leftovers and voila!
