Wonderfully gloomy day here today. We actually needed some rain and gives me a chance to stay inside and catch up with some cards and jobs. Over at the Time Out Challenge Blog they have a theme this week of 'Celebrations with the optional twist of Butterflies'. I wanted to have a go again with my butterfly stencil and even had my daughter Phoebe making a card at the same time!
I have Phoebe to thank for the colour scheme of this card. I knew I wanted to use gold (which I heat embossed the sentiment with) but wasn't' sure of the main colours. Phoebe stenciled her own butterfly first with pink and then went around the edge with yellow. Out popped this gorgeous peachy colour.
So with her approval, I used my mini blending tool to do the same colours with my distress and dye ink. I added a very bottom layer of gold cardstock (so there is just a hint around the edges) and then a similar peachy coloured patterned paper. Popped the front panel up on foam squares and tried to add some enamel dots but nothing seemed to work. I love the butterflies and it seems I'm not the only card maker in the family.......my little protege!
The sentiment is from CASual Fridays 'Shenanigans'. The stencil is from Teresa Collins 'Basically Essential' and patterned paper from Teresa Collins 'You are my Happy'.
I'm also going to link this to the challenge at Addicted to CAS #44 where their theme is:
I'm not sure if it will pass as a CAS card with the different layers of cardstock but because the front panel is so simple it may squeeze through....
Right, a card making I will go. My poor dogs are looking at me like I've told them the world is ending. No walking in a downpour today, will have to do laps of the lounge room instead!!
