Pink and Blue Congratulations!

Happy Monday!
Time to start a new challenge at Digi Makeover, and this week it's Anything Goes!  Along with our July Guest Designer call!!  So swing by and join in!

I decided to try something new for my card today.  I recently received a little order of die cuts that I have adored playing with.  So I pulled them out again to give this little technique a try.
The Joy Crafts Butterfly Border was a little temper-mental going through the die cut machine, and didn't cut out all that great.  Maybe it was because they weren't in the middle of the plate...I'm not sure, but I had to do a lot of extra work to get them to cut.  But basically I printed off my sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps, then lined up my die along the top of that sentiment and put only the part of the die that I wanted to cut on the cutting plate so that the bottom would stay attached to my card.

I think it turned out super cute, even with all the extra work I had to do to get it cut out :)
It's kept pretty simple since the butterflies add a lot of detail and the paper is all sparkly.  I just added a few liquid pearls to give a little more definition to the butterflies.

And this one turned out so cute, I decided to make another one :)
This one is with a Lin & Lene Heart Border die cut.  I LOVE this die and have not been able to stop using it since it showed up in my mailbox :)  I had a little trouble getting this one lined up properly on my cutting plates, but nothing that a little bit of ribbon couldn't cover!
