Fabric and Butterflies
I had to play along with May's Get Your Diva On challenge. It was a toughie for me though. Diva Amy chose to have players incorporate fabric. I'm not so confident when it comes to fabric. That is my mother's domain. I'll take paper anyday! I gave it my best shot though.
I used my Flutterby die and some white tulle. On the first photo, it just looks like I have some texture going on for my butterflies. A close up shot will reveal how the edges of the tulle curl up and give it a little more dimension. I accented the center of each butterfly with some embossed and colored vellum and a light stickling!
I called on a CPS sketch to get me started on this card and I love the little banner sentiment at the bottom of the card. I embossed it on white to bring a little more amethyst to the card.
Today, my sweet little girl leaves for Disneyland with her a couple of her aunties, a couple of her cousins and one grandmother. She's a big girl now, almost five years old. She's up for the adventure and I highly doubt she will miss Mommy and Daddy!
Thanks for stopping by!
