Doily And Butterflies And A New Die

This Happy Birthday die had been on my wish list for some time but always got bumped by other things. So I was chuffed to bits to win it at Pixie's Snippets Playground last week. It popped through the letterbox this morning (thanks Di x) so I had to have a play. I've used it on my card for The Butterfly Challenge this week which is to use a doily. I'm also entering this back at the Playground because the doily is from my snippets box. I cut it ages ago but it "double cut" so if you look closely the small holes around the centre which should be round but most are oval where the paper moved on the second cut. It also tore when I took it out so I put it away to rescue later. I thought this fan idea would disguise it enough to use
