Crowns and Butterflies!

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

I'm back...and this time with 2 card projects. I'm in such a scrappy mood lately that I've been creating all kinds of new projects. Please keep reading to see my other card creation.

My first card pictured above is for the Etsy Inspired Challenge. This week they are featuring the Cathy Walters Etsy shop. I was inspired by this "Faith" double-sided pendant. It is so elegant with the crown on one side and this pretty graphic paper on the back. 

I used paper and embellishments from 7 Gypsies then added a splash of red ribbon. Here's a close-up shot of the card. I think this paper goes really well with the inspirational design of the pendent.

Here is my 2nd card. I made this one for the Wee Memories Butterfly challenge. And since I have been wanting to enter contests over at the Just Us Girls challenge I also submitted this card for their sketch challenge going on this week. 

I used pretty Bo Bunny paper, Basic Grey embellishments, and a sentiment from my stash.


Here's a close-up picture of my butterfly card. I love big flowers and thought it would be fun to add the butterfly on top of it. I also added smaller butterflies around the sentiment.

Entered in the following challenges:
Etsy Inspired Challenge - EIC #100 Cathy Walters Challenge
Wee Memories - #17 Butterfly Challenge
Just Us Girls Challenge - Sketch #45

Have a Creative Week!
