I am back!!! This is my second post of the day so I will make it quick.
I started this card last night. My inspiration was Freshly Made Sketch blog's #154.
This looks like a very simple card but as it always goes with me, I played with it a long time. I am not happy with the two butterflies. I wanted three but the space would not hold that number and have the added sentiment.
I started the card wanting to use a cover plate from PTI but after die cutting it, I knew it would not work. I found this pretty piece of patterned paper by American Crafts in the "Dear Lizzy Neapolitan" 6" by 6" paper pad and knew I had to use it. I then die cut the rectangle and one butterfly out of two other pieces of patterned paper from that same pad.
I love the Memory Box butterfly. It is so delicate!!! I die cut the middle of the butterflies out of black and used black Stickles over it. I so wish I could of fit one more. Just the two bugs me!!
Here is the fun sketch that was the inspiration for this card:
I will be saving this for later because I know a few more cards I want to create with it.
I am also going to enter this card into Darnell's NBUS challenge at djkarddreations.
I had never used the butterfly die cut nor this patterned paper pad before today. Thank you for the challenge Darnell!!
I appreciate you stopping by tonight. Have a fabulous night!!
