butterfly puzzle

I'm joining the fun at the CAS(E) this Sketch and Runway Inspired Challenges with this butterfly thank you card:

I recently saw a video by Laura Bassen (here), where she glued a bunch of small die-cuts from a larger die.  The effect was so cool and well worth the time and effort, so I decided to try the same thing with my butterfly die.

Piecing the wing bits together back together into the intricate butterfly frame was oddly enjoyable...honestly, it reminded me of one of my favorite games as a child: Operation!!!

Finished my card off with a label from the DYMO label maker I "borrowed" from my sister;)

Thanks for stopping by!

Inks: Memento Luxe (lilac posies, nautical blue); Delicata (golden glitz)
