Good Luck!

Supplies:  pp - Basic Grey, pp - Pina Colada collection - Kaisercraft,
 orange cardstock - Canson, Butterfly die - 
Stampin Up, kraft cardstock - Bazzill Basics, Baby Bowser font - 
computer generated sentiment, machine stitching, button 
from stash and tombow roller adhesive.

Wanted to make some bright and cheery good luck cards as it is that time of the year - Leaving Certificate exams.  These are the final exams you take in Ireland before you start the next chapter - college/job etc.

I had the tiniest scrap of the Kaisercraft paper left and ran it through my Big Shot with my favourite butterfly die.  I love this paper and you can see other cards using it here and here.
I layered up the butterfly and machine stitched to the card.  The base paper is from a Basic Grey 6x6 paper stack called basics manilla and is an off white colour (not very evident from the photo!).

Challenges

Love this Deirdre, love the pop of orange and blue.
Plenty of exam stress in our house this year, eldest daughter has her Leaving so need cards for her and her friends, then there's all the Debs in the summer! Lots of crafting to be done.
