OCC Challenge - Beautiful Butterflies!!!

Saturday, April 17, 2010

Happy Saturday!!! I'm here with a new challenge from Our Creative Corner. This week I'm challenging you to use butterflies on your cards. My card uses paper from Green at Heart by Basic Grey. The flowers that I stamped use three colors. Click on the photo above to see it larger. I lightly applied brown ink to the entire stamp, then applied pink and purple ink to the flowers. I love how it turned out and how well it coordinates with the paper.
For the ribbon I applied a strip across the card front. Then I simply snipped four 1" pieces of ribbon, applied snail adhesive to one end and folded them to make a little loop. I then applied the loops underneath the card stock using glue dots. Hope that wasn't too confusing.

Head on over to Our Creative Corner to see the Design Team's samples and get inspired to create a butterfly card of your own. I hope you can play along with us this week!!!
