I don't think there is a single soul that does not like butterflies!! With their delicate wings and their dance among the flowers when the weather is warm, they give us so much joy and we watch them with a smile in the corner of our mouths and with amazement in our eyes... I too love butterflies, and I remember my fascinatioon with them ever since I was a child. Spring is almost here, and that brings us a promise that we will meet these wonderful creatures once again...
The Belli Challenge blog gives us the opportunity to show off our butterflies (or dragonflies), and I chose to make a card using some blue ones that I decoupaged from a vellum sheet that I bought from Hobby Center. If you look closely, you will see that the background paper also has embossed butterflies in it, which I found years ago at Diverta, and its iridescence gives the card an elegant air.
That paper is also the one that convinced me to keep it simple, otherwise the card would have seemed so overloaded and it would have lost its charm.
Besides The Belli Challenge, this card is also appropriate for:
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Keep It Simple
2 Sketches 4 You - I followed their sketch
The Pink Elephant Challenge - Ribbon
Little Red Wagon - Ribbon
ABC Challenge - O Is For One Paper
Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge - Dazzle Us!
