Butterfly card for Mother's Day + CTMH Class 4/5/2016

Using a butterfly die that I received with my Quick Cards magazine subscription, and pairing black and bright yellow, I've added this card to the box for Send a Smile 4 Kids.
Stamps used are from CTMH
Inspired by an article about using dies for edges, I only ran the yellow paper and die part way through the Cuttlebug.  By stopping before the entire die was cut, the design remains as a decorative edge still attached to your cardstock.  
Challenges I am entering....

Yesterday was our CTMH card class at Joyce's.
We started out making a Magic Card.  This was my first experience making one of these and it wasn't exactly smooth sailing.

wait for it..

Wait for it....
It's magic!

Our second card was a shaker card. 
Joyce certainly had an interesting assortment of sequins in her jar!

And our third card was mercifully easy.
All 3 cards featured the CTMH April Stamp of the Month.
