Anything Goes Challenge at TTCRD

It’s Tuesday and time for another Through the Craft Room Door challenge. As always the theme is my favorite, Anything Goes! There is a new challenge every Tuesday at TTCRD. I am on Team A and this week is our turn to post our cards. The sponsor this week is Anne’s Cards for U. Check out the TTCRD blog for all the details and great cards by the rest of the dt.

For this challenge, I created a card featuring a beautiful butterfly digi from Anne’s Cards for U. I placed the butterfly once on a white card front, then flipped it and made it smaller before printing it. Then I printed them again on blue and yellow patterned paper, cut them out and paper pieced to the white piece. I die cut “friends” from Tim Holtz for Sizzix and attached. I layered a glittery piece of acetate over the front and attached to a black card base. I added a small butterfly (Martha Stewart punch) with a gem to complete the card. Here is a closer look at the sparkly acetate front:
