The Card Concept #7

Hey everyone,

This is my second post for today! Please scroll down for the new Freshly Made Skteches Challange!!

And now,welcome to a new The Card Concept Challange!!! Me loving this one a looooot!!! :D

Perfect Challenge for me! ;) I am pretty much Butterfly addicted.I love these beautiful little "creatures"! I have two butterflies tattooed with the names of my sweet girls ontop of each one.Yes...now everyone knows i am tattooed! ;)

I focused pretty much on the beautiful colors of the butterfly from the inspiration photo! I used Shadow Inks and a stamp from Simon Says Stamp to create the background.I used the same inks to color in the two banner shaped stripes.I used the Wink of Stella pen and Glossy Accents on my butterfly to give it this beautiful shine.I also used a few Gemstones,but not to much,so the focus will stay on the butterfly.

supplies: Clearly Besotted - Butterfly Wishes Stamp and Die, Hero Arts - Shadow Inks, Avery Elle - Handwritten Notes, My Creative Time - Fun Stitched Edges - Stitched Journal Die, Twine, Simon Says Stamp - Thinking of you Stamp Set, Hero Arts - Gems, Ranger - Black Enamel Accents, Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents

You probably don't realize how closely I study your cards Cindy...I am determined to learn the Freestyle Collage style. I love how you added the banner strips behind the butterfly and the stitched journal die cut. This is such a well done card...I love it!

Such a dramatically gorgeous card Cindy. I love the black glossy butterfly on the bright banners and the touch of two tone twine. All round lovely.
