Double-Challenge Unity USC7 Thank You!

It's WEdnesday, and that means Unity Challenge and Customer Blog Hop!! Be sure to check out this thread to see all the great creations! This week's challenge is from Jessica (jezirus) and is to make a non-A2 sized card..."non-A2 card... tall and skinny, square,big, small, round, whatever, just NOT A2 sized." So I decided to make a round one....
I started by cutting a Kiwi Kiss card base with the largest circle from my Coluzzle (leaving just a bit at the fold). Then I cut a Confetti Cream circle with the second largest circle. I stacked a strip of Tangerine Tango onto a 1/4" wider strip of Chocolate Chip, then cut them with the largest circle to match the card base. I adhered everything to the Kiwi Kiss base, added some Making Memories chipboard letters, and the butterfly from Unity's September KOTM (which was stamped in chocolate and then sponged with Pumpkin Pie), popped up on dimensionals. I tied on a BOW in satin ribbon, and then decided to make a matching envelope, since the card is just about 4 1/4" round. I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and punched all the way through the envelope, then lined it with a 1 1/4" strip of Kiwi Kiss, adhered everywhere but where the punch-out is. (Does that make sense? I'll try to find JulieHRR's instructions and give you the link)

Make sure you check out the other challenge girls' cards, and GO PLAY!! Thanks for stopping by today!
