Karen Burniston July Designer Challenge - Stretch it out

It's time for Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge - Stretch it out!  The team was challenged to use an Accordion die for any theme and to stretch it out well....just like the title says.
I used the Accordion Rectangle with Butterfly Pivot dies.  Yes, only 2 dies made this card!  I cut 3 Accordion Rectangle panels in purple, 2 in pattern paper and 1 in Very Vanilla.  I stamped the sentiment from the clear stamp set What's Up? onto the rectangle that's included in the Accordion Rectangle.  The butterfly body is a mix of White and Basic Black Silk Microfine Glitter.
 I die cut 2 sets of Butterfly Pivots and cut off the butterflies so all I had was the pivoting areas.  To adhere the butterflies to the card base, I notched the middle butterfly so it would have more dimension and move freely.  I adhered the butterfly to the last panel first and then worked my way to the front to make sure it would all fold flat. 
I just love the colors - purple is my favorite color!  I hope you have enjoyed my project and don't forget to check out Karen's blog tomorrow where she will have a video tutorial.

Happy Stampin',
