A Butterfly Thinlit Better Together and Flourish Thinlits Birthday Card

I LOVE that lattice flowery looking border on the left of this card.  It's a fun to look at and fun to play with.  At first I wasn't all that fond of it because I thought it was difficult to glue in place.  But I found that if I spread some white glue on waxed paper and set the piece directly in it.  I gently pressed it into the glue.  Not too hard because I didn't want glue oozing on top of the image.  I set it in place and took a toothpick to any little bits of glue that may have oozed out.

I layered the lattice looking piece on top of a 7/8" piece of Whisper White and I layered that on top of a 1-1/8" piece of Basic Black.  

I cut out a Rose Red butterfly using the "Butterfly" thinlit.  I set it in place using Dimensionals.  I added some pearls down the center to give it a bit of glitz!!

The words are from the "Better Together" set.  And that was it. Pretty quick and simple too!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

SU has a fine tip glue that works well for these kind of projects. It might be a little time consuming but well worth it. Lovely card, I don't have either of those thinlits but I am sure I can find someone in my card making circle that will let me borrow, lol.
