In Ever Decreasing Circles

Just Time to show one last card  for the Butterfly Challenge.

#79 Butterflies + L is for Lots  of Layers and/or the colour Cream.

Challenge runs until 13th June.

This is my inspiration for you. I saw Jennifer Mcguire make a card using Stacked Die Cutting on her blog last month  and you can follow the video here. I thought it fitted my lots of layers perfectly.

I have used my Sizzix Scallop circles as my die shape.  Cut from 4 different coloured pieces of cardstock picking the colours from the image which is by Hunkdory from their 'Little Book of Butterflies.'  I cut the image down to fit behind the last circle. The sentiment is cut in 3 of the colours using a die from Crafter's Companion and glued together very slightly off each other to give the shadow effect. I have adhered the front to a piece of dark brown cardstock to make the base card.  The extra butterfly was in my stash
