Butterfly

I managed to grab a few minutes to myself this morning and decided to make a few cards. I sometimes try too hard putting my cards together and am never fully satisfied with how they end up. Today, I tried to think less about what I was creating and just go with the flow.

So here is one of the cards that I put together this morning...


I used one of my new Darkroom Door butterfly stamps and inked with fresh snow and stamped onto kraft cardstock. Unfortunately I decided to add some glitter after I'd cut around the image which by this time the ink had almost dried, so its not quite as sparkly as I had wanted, but I still absolutely love it!

LinkI wanted to use some wide ribbon and chose this ivory silky crush ribbon and tied into a large bow.


I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Sing It ('Butterfly' by Crazy Town)
Flutterby Wednesday #171 - Butterfly
My Mums Craft Shop Challenge - Anything Goes
Scrapmaster Paradise (Colour Combo #117 - Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Regal Rose)
Creative Inspirations Paint - Use ribbon

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Papermania Kraft, EP Victoria Garden, MME
Stamps: Darkroom Door Butterfly stamp set from the ribbon reel, WMS Fancy Phrases
Ribbon: Ivory silky crush from the ribbon reel
Other: Nesties, White Tea Rose from the ribbon reel


TFL!
