Sooo ... Eva Dobilas is having a Butterfly Blog Link Party starting at midnight on Saturday night. I found out about it through Angie Blom, and thought it sounded like a good way to use some pretty Spring-y things to help herald in some beautiful weather.
Also, Clare put together a lovely Wednesday Card Challenge over at Simply Scrapping Crafts - the challenge is to use a double bow on your project, and she even provided a tutorial video.
And ... over at The Outlawz, Colleen has a Greeting Card Challenge to use punches or die cuts, so this card fit all three needs. How sweet is that!!!
I used a butterfly shape as a mask and painted around it with a paint dabber. Then I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch to create a flutter of flies, and added some pearls that I colored with my Copics. I also added a "hello" tag and a stickpin that I made using a corsage pin and some beautiful beads.
I love the Spring colors against the black background - even after a long, cold, dark winter, Spring always shows up!
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you like the card and are inspired to create something today! Big hugs to all!
