Jenny Gropp is the fabulous designer of this Bohemian Butterfly Card.  I think we are all in the mood for summer.  My garden is growing, birds are chirping and yes, I’ve seen butterflies.  But, I do make time for card-making 😉  Take a wander over to Jenny’s blog, she has more wonderful projects here  on her blog called One Krafty Kat.

Jenny says this about her card “ I think the new Bohemian Bazaar collection from Graphic 45 certainly fits the theme of Summer Colors! I cut the circle base from the IO Circle Shaker Die and ran it through a CB Folder to add some embossing. I added the printed chipboard circle and then used the IO Fancy Butterfly Die in the center of it, popping it with Dimensional silicone to keep the wings curved. I cut the solid butterfly out of yellow for the bottom layer. For the fancy butterfly I positioned the die cut evenly over a flower in the printed paper… that way the colors and the design are some what symmetrical.”

Here’s the inside.  I love it when the inside is colorful too!
