Like the Butterfly


Happy Beautiful Day to You!  Today I have a card that I have created just for fun.  I have been looking at so many wonderful inspirational cards and this is the fruition of it.  The circle came from the challenge over at CAS on Sunday - circles and I was going to make an easel card like my wonderful friend Vicki has a tutorial on. (I messed up and so just had to adapt what I had with the paper I had left. It's not difficult with her tutorial, but....well perhaps I was just tired?) I shall try again for I've bookmarked her tutorial! Do go check it out HERE! And then for the embossing technique, I saw it on a friend of mine Natalie's blog and it just struck me as a must try!  Mine didn't turn out quite like hers, but I do love the different tones. Go and pop over to see her creation that inspired me, HERE!
So, I used a soft brown for the background of the embossing and a lighter brown and bundled sage ink for the raised areas.  I used some Offray ribbon, a TLC sentiment and a butterfly stamp from Inkadinkado.  The edging just looked too plain for me so I added the scallop to it.  It doesn't seem too CAS, but I tried.  My photo box is on a bit of a tilt so I added a couple of crocheted flowers to hold it in place :)
Well do have a wonderful day and enjoy all the little details the Lord Jesus brings your way!

Well I'm impressed with every bit of this card whether you thought they were flops or not. The circle shape is fun and the embossing is really cool looking especially behind the butterfly. It's beautiful! Hugs!
