Sending Butterfly Wishes: Global Design Project - Case the designer challenge.

Hello there! I thought I would sneak in another card for the Global Design Project #GDP024, as I think this one conforms better with the Case Designer Challenge in terms of the layout.
Here is Michelle Last's card again.

I also wanted another excuse to show another way you can use the brilliant Butterfly Basics bundle. For this card I used the Time Elegance designer series paper and silver heat embossed the floral images from Butterfly basics stamp to add some interest.

The window/shaker part of  the card features the butterfly lace image and used the coordinating die to make the window. I stamped it using Pool Party for that pop of colour. I used several thick coaster boards as frames, all aligned to build the height needed to make the shaker card window that will house the sequins. Just to create interest, I used rhinestones inside the shaker card window so it stays put rather than all the sequins falling down. Once it was all contained I sealed it with the window sheet/acetate and placed the top panel to complete the window.

The sentiments "Sending Wishes Your Way", is also from the Butterfly Basics stamp set. It's just gorgeous! I tied silver baker's twine bow around the window shaker to coordinate with the color scheme. I kept the same color combination inside the card using the flora images and the smaller butterfly which is also in the set. I hope this card has inspired you or to create something similar.
