Stuck In The Middle

 Hi!  I am hosting the challenge this time at The Funkie Junkie Boutique this time around.  I chose Stuck in The Middle as the challenge.  I was thinking about June being in the middle of the year. Here is the challenge description: 

"For this challenge I want you to showcase something in the middle. It can be a pop up card with a surprise in the middle, it can be a mini journal with pages inside, it can be anything that highlights the middle of something!"

Here is how I was inspired by the middle:

I had this vision of a butterfly opening up in the middle of the card.  But what is better than one butterfly opening it's wings?  Two butterflies!  :)

The card design is intended to be simple and highlight the butterfly delicate wings.  I cut two of the beautiful Sizzix Tim Holtz Butterflies from white cardstock. 

I cut the butterfly down the middle.  I attached each wing to the front and back of the card and on the inside I did the same to create my butterfly in the middle.

I then embossed panels using the damask embossing folder and used them to frame out the beautiful wings.  

I finished with a lovely Irish blessing about butterflies stamped on vellum. 

Come join us in the challenge.  There is a lovely prize and great opportunity to share your art on the challenge blog!  The overall winner will be offered the chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date  at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the drawing for the chance to win a $25.00 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.
