Butterfly Spirals

Where has July gone?? I really didn't mean for it to be this long between posts, but school holidays and then getting kids back to school, and then having sick kids, classes starting up again, and preparing for Stamp Camp this weekend has left me with NO free time for blogging. Today I still have about a million things to do to get ready for my Stamp Camp this weekend, so I'll have to keep this brief. I'm off to the Hunter Valley this weekend with 30 lovely team members and their guests and I can't wait! I've got so much planned and I don't think the weekend is going to be long enough!!

In last night's technique class, one of the cards we made was this Butterfly Spiral Pop-Up Card...aka Amy's Birthday card this year! Aren't I a bad Mum...I gave her the card (back in May) and then took it back again. I have now made an extra one, so she can have her original card back!
Amy chose the colours for this one. I always get her to give me a colour challenge for her Birthday cards.
Here is the front:

A tricky one to photograph. The butterflies are all sparkly in real life. I know Amy loved her card, and I think everyone at the class did too (even if they didn't like cutting out that spiral by hand!)
