Happy Spring Card

This is a card that came to be after a mistake.
My initial idea was to die cut the butterfly and use only the negative part of it,
but the cardstock was too thick for the die
and didn't cut the body of the butterfly.
So, I used the mistake for my benefit and changed my design a bit.

Este cartao aconteceu depois de um erro.
Na verdade, eu queria cortar a borboleta e utilizar somente o negativo dela mas,
como o papel era muito grosso, o die nao cortou o corpo
da borboleta.
Entao, usei essa falha em meu beneficio
e mudei o design do cartao so' um pouquinho.

I like that, the body is embossed and you can still see it.

The same die on the front of the card was used on the inside
and with a little alteration it became 
a flower!

Materials used:
Paper Smooches Stamp
Memory Box Die
Quick Cuts Die
Cardstocks from Simon says Stamps Card Kit
Patterned Papers from my Stash

With this card I am Participating in the following fun challenges:
