Welcome back to another fun challenge! Were you all as blown away as I was with the amazing entries again this week? I thought so! And how about the DT cards? Those ladies are soooooo talented!
Butterflies....no problem....until I started searching through my stamps! Yes, there was a stamp or two of the pretty winged beauties but most images were no larger than a dime! Silhouette to the rescue. My heart skipped a beat when I spied this little pretty! I love the clean graphic lines of this design. And for only $.55 - it was one of those "Start The Car, Start The Car" moments!
I found this gorgeous piece of aqua colored velum in my scrap pile. It has a slight hint of mauve that is so pretty in real life. I cut the panel about 1" longer, scored a nice deep line at the top, folded it over, placed the fold line along the top of the card and adhered the panel on the backside of the card. No messy glue marks to be seen!
I also added a layer of regular velum (see close-up picture) and two tiny seed pearls to the butterfly.
We would love to see your butterfly card creations. Remember, you get to choose your style at The Card Concept Challenge! Why not try something different this time round?
I'm also entering my card into a new challenge called TIME OUT Challenge, where we are encouraged to take time out from our busy lives and enjoy the relaxing sport of card making! Take a look at this lovely duvet ensemble! Thanks for introducing me to this new challenge blog Shirley!
