Well this is just such a card. It was supposed to be a quick wham bam and done but was anything but.
I wanted to make a card to show that there was still 6 1/2 days to enter over at the Butterfly challenge but there isn't! It took so long there are only 5 days left!!
I decided to make a stepper card and this is very much a
"Don't do as I do but do as I say" as I decided after cutting the slit in the card to cover the front , inside and out. Hence the time taken to paper piece together. Pleased with the result of the card in the end but it would have been so much easier if I had thought it through first. Lesson learnt.

As you can see the Butterflies can be quite incidental to the main feature on your card.
