Wings & Things

Hello, everyone!  It is Shirley posting. How many of us had an idea for a card, and the design took it a totally different direction? That's what happened here. You just have to go with the flow!

I have a bright and happy card for you today.  I love turquoise and orange together, and when you add a butterfly, that makes for a cheerful card.  At least, that is how it appears to me.

The card started with a white card base. I followed that with a layer of turquoise. I had this pretty orange/yellow textured paper that a friend shared with me, and  added that layer over the turquoise.

I stamped an image by Heartfelt Creations - Dream in Beauty on white card stock twice. I colored both images with markers. I cut one of them out using the Heartfelt Creations Botanical Wings die set. The other image was cut with a circle die, and a turquoise circle was layered behind it. Crystal Ice glitter was added to the butterfly, and it was popped up with Small Foam Pads over the other butterfly image.

The orange decorative border was cut using the Sue Wilson Lavish Swirls - Diagonals die.  I used the Sue Wilson Finishing Touches - Filigree 3D Itty Bitty Bow die.

White Pearls were added to the corners as the finishing touch.

So happy you stopped in today to view our blog.  Have a wonderful weekend.
