Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge Butterfly Pop-up card

Hello, friends! 
Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Butterfly Pop-up card

Today, I am hosting the challenge over at Bitten By the Bug. For today's challenge everyone has to make some thing using a butterfly that you cut using your Cricut. I chose butterflies because I like them almost as much as I like flowers and unicorns! 

My project is made using the Close To My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge. I just love the pop up butterfly on the inside. When I was designing it, I just kept thinking about monarch butterflies. I didn't want them all over the card because all of the orange and black might look Halloweenish. Anyway, I decided I would make the gorgeous big pop up butterfly on the inside a monarch and I really love how it turned out!

I love this card! It is absolutely beautiful! I had just replaced my Cricut Expression just prior to the announcement of the release of the explore. So I will wait, and maybe for Xmas, Santa will bring me one! But, I will keep using my expession. After all, I do love it and it still works great. I have all the CTMH cartridges except the last one, which I am ordering today!! Thank you, Bridgette, now living in Las Vegas
