Yikes! Has it really been since the beginning of November since I posted?! I'm sooo sorry about that! The end of the year just flew by not only because of dealing with birthdays and Christmas but we also did some painting too. I can't believe 2014 is actually here!! One of my resolutions this year is to definitely blog more. So...to encourage me to blog more I have decided to try and participate in lots of challenges. Not only does this spruce up my mojo but also challenges have deadlines for entry and so I must blog to meet those deadlines. So wish me luck! I hope you all do well with your New Year resolutions too.
Okay so I decided to make a card combining two challenges. I love it when others choose color combos. I have found soo many amazing combos when looking at color combo challenges. This time was no exception...I never would have put these colors together on my own but they really do look great together!
here. There is still time to enter!
here. Isn't that sentiment terrific. I found it on Pinterest but it doesn't give a website. You can find the printable sentiment here. I copied it into word and printed 4 to a page so I can make similar cards quickly. Aren't those butterflies adorable! I just love the pearl beads on the body. They actually are made using my KNK cutter and my 3-D butterflies file. (Psst...I'm opening up a new store soon so these will be available there shortly).
Here is a close up. Simply lay the one butterfly down flat then layer the embellished one on top with a little foam pop tape just in the middle and bend the wings forward a bit. Instant depth!
I stamped the background with a Filagree Stamping up stamp using a Memento ink a shade darker than my cardstock. The trim was from a bag I got at the Good Will store.
The kids are in bed and it is so peaceful and quiet here! Time to chill..watch some Dexter (a show we just started watching..but I feeling we're going to be hooked!) and snuggle with my hubby! I will be back tomorrow with another challenge card post! Please come back and visit me!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
