Everyday Enchantment... Again!

Good morning all.  Just to say first of all that I had a wonderful birthday yesterday and received some of the most beautiful cards I've ever seen, all made by members of the card swap group.  It absolutely made my day, and I can't thank you enough.  You are a very talented bunch of crafters.  I'll be showcasing the cards on here very soon, because you just have to see what I got!
And now for today's card.  I saw this on Pinterest and just had to have a go.  The hardest part was working out the measurements to get 4 equal strips of paper, and now I can't remember what they are!  I had to ask my engineering husband to work it out for me in the first place (I don't do maths!) 
The card base is 7" x 5" in Lucky Limeade (my new favourite colour!) so the next layer is a 1/4" shorter all round, then I cut and stuck the dsp down, and then cut with the framelits dies.  The stamp is from Sprinkled Expressions, a retired set, but as with any card I make, it's all about using what works for you, so any sentiment that fits will look great.   It's stamped in Lucky Limeade ink.  I've popped on a couple of butterflies (remembering to add some gems this time!) and there we have it.
My dilemma now is, do I show cards on here that I'm going to send to a member of the card swap group at a later date, or do I make a new card once a month, in which case I won't have used any of my stash up and will still have loads of cards left?  Life's complicated, isn't it?
Enjoy your day, everyone, thanks for looking in today and feel free to leave a comment, I love to know what you think of my creations.
Back soon
