Wednesday Wow Card

Ok, so I know you are looking at this card and thinking what's so WOW about that. You are thinking, it's a nice card. I like the colors, love the Urban Garden paper, the scalloped edge is nice, butterfly is cute but I really wouldn't call it a WOW. It's ok to think that because the WOW factor isn't on the outside of the card. The WOW factor is when the person gets the card and opens it up and sees this:
Now who wouldn't say WOW when they open the card and see all these butterflies zooming around? Even my dear, sweet husband said WOW when he opened the card and he looks at my stuff all the time with a sideways glance. I created this card as part of a demonstrator challenge. I had a lot of fun making the card and have to say that I'll be making more! The inside "spring" was made but taking the 1 3/4 inch circle punch, punching it out and then cutting it around and around. Then you glue it into your card base. The one thing I found out when making the card is that you have to make sure your springs are too close to the edge and the items you put on the springs aren't too close to the edge or they want to escape out the side. I hope you'll create your own WOW spring card. If you do, post it in the comments as I'd love to see it! Here's the details on my this card. All products from Stampin' Up!

Paper: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Shimmery White

No, I would've said wow on seeing the front of the card - really really pretty - but indeed what a fabulous idea to make the butterflies spring out - I love this - and using a circle to make this happen - wow!! Thanks for sharing!!
