This is the gorgeous card this week for the Muse Challenge. They have the most incredible cards for inspiration. I loved the colours and the intricate butterfly die. Here is what I came up with:
I chose to do a softer pink using distress inks and stamped my butterfly straight on top. I added a little Wink of Stella to the wings for a bit of sparkle. I popped the pink card on some foam squares above a slightly larger piece of black cardstock. The sentiment was heat embossed in white on to some vellum and carefully glued to the front. Just a couple of enamel dots and a rhinestone made it on to the card as I wanted to keep it as simple as possible.
The butterfly stamp is from Couture Creations and the sentiment from Hero Arts 'Year Round Sentiments'. The enamel dots are from Papervine and the rhinestone from Kaisercraft.
I really wanted to link this card to the challenge at Addicted to Stamps #111 where their theme is 'Anything Goes with the optional twist of Get Well/Thinking of You'. They have dedicated this challenge to their friend Marie who has health problems at the moment. They wanted her to know that people are thinking of her. This is so lovely of them and I'm sure Marie would be so touched at their kindness.
I'm also going to link this to the challenge at CAS on Sunday #41 where their theme is 'Black and White with one colour'. I've gone with black/white and pink.
And of course I will be linking to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme for Stamptember is 'Stamp it'. This is my second entry.
I also wanted to mention that I have been a huge fan of Joan Rivers for many years and was so shocked yesterday to hear that she had passed away. To lose her and Robin Williams within the past few months is heartbreaking as I loved their humour and craziness so much. No one will ever be able to replace them and I don't think anyone will make me laugh so hard. They will certainly be missed.
