For the love of butterflies.....
I don't often buy ready-made embellishments...preferring to make my own. But when I saw a pack of these beauties in the store a few months ago, I went for it. I've been hoarding them too, wanting to use them on just the perfect card. Well this is it!!! The colors went together so well and the bottom layer is just gorgeous going from pink to brown to green to blue. It's one of the favorite embellishments I have ever owned.
Now that I have oohd and aaahd over a store bought butterfly, let me tell you about the rest of the card. The background paper is sort of a vintage paisley that looks like it's been washed. The flourishes are sizzix cut with the Cuttlebug and then embossed with a very shiny clear and then clear glitter. This double embossing leaves the flourishes looking very thick, shiny and multi-colored. The sparkle goes from brown to blue and green. And, I have a corner embellishment topped with Stickles on the right.
This card will fit into the Play Date Cafe challenge for scarlet, orange, brown and blue. The top layer of the butterfly has orange on it.
It will also fit for the Crafty Calendar challenge for having bugs on your card. A butterfly is a bug, right?
Thanks for stopping by.
Please come again, and leave me a comment....I love to hear what you have to say.
