Harebell round card

You all know how I love shaped cards. I found this terrific free svg site, Monica's Creative Room and she has some fabulous svgs. This is a shaped card and the flowers are harebells. Sort of like blue bells.
Anyway, I cut it out but the outer round ended up being cut off with the Cricut so I had to go into her pattern on SCAL and erase all the interior cuts and just cut an outline to make the folding card. The cardstock I was using was very flimsy so I have several layers.
The butterfly is a Marianne Design cut 3 times. Actually the 3rd cut is the wax paper that I use to be able to remove all the little pieces from the cut. I thought it was rather pretty so left it.
I was not too happy with this card and it has been on the desk awhile but I figured I better post it. There is a slight flaw in the placement of the bells on the bottom layer but se la vie.It only shows up really well in the photo. lol
The little embellishments were in the stash. I didn't photo the envelope because I forgot but it is lined with a row of harebells.
Have a Blessed day.

I think your card is really pretty...beautiful butterfly. I love the idea of the wax using a needle to poke the paper out!

I've used that pattern on my Pazzles Inspiration, and like you, I wasn't really happy with mine either, so I never took a picture of it. My flower layer was periwinkle blue, and the other paper was a soft yellow. I don't remember how I decorated mine though. I really like the butterfly and dragonflies on yours.

I agree about the wax paper. It always looks so pretty I hate throwing it out.
