TCP Tuesday 270-You Still Give Me Butterflies

This week's TCP Tuesday challenge is a sketch created by Wendy.  To make it easy for you to play along, Alma has created free downloadable cut files for the sketch.  You can find them here.  If you don't have an electronic cutter, don't worry--Alma's got you covered!  The file includes a PDF version that you can print and cut by hand.

You Still Give Me Butterflies card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from The Cat's Pajamas
I manipulated the cut file a bit to fit the sketch on a standard A2 cardfront since that's the size card I prefer to send.  It didn't take long to do using the Silhouette software. I used a piece of pretty floral patterned paper to cover most of the cardfront, then cut the rest of the panels from coordinating pieces of solid cardstock.

Once all the panels were in place, I used the new CutUps Butterflies dies to cut a trio of light pink butterflies.  I adhered one butterfly to each of the small panels on the cardfront, then stamped the "you still give me butterflies" sentiment from the Flutter By set on the cardfront in black ink.

I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge. Link up your finished project on the TCP blog for a chance to win this week's Cat Cash prize--and to be in the running to be our next Swanky Stamper. The Swanky Stamper is selected from among all of the month's challenge entries and gets a selection of stamps from an upcoming release and joins the Cat Pack for our Pajama Party and Blog Hop. You can find all the details on the TCP blog.

And, I hope you'll join us for the TCP Summer Blog Hop.  All you need to do to play along is to share a creation made with something from the latest TCP release.  You have until July 23 link your project up on TCP blog for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate.  Again, you can find all the details on the TCP blog. Hope you'll play along!
