Butterfly fly away!

Hi there! As you might have noticed (due to my lack of posting recently) I've been taking a bit of a break from card making. Except of course to make some last-second cards for events that are happening, but other than that I've found other things to do. :) Plus, it's summer time...and when the sun is shining it's more fun to spend time outdoors (suntanning or something! LOL) than inside making cards.

I few friends of mine are getting married in the next few months, and I need to get started on making some wedding cards. I saw some fabulous ones in the fiskateer gallery and decided to try lifting one.

I don't have a butterfly punch -- haven't seen one I like...but hopefully next Wpg trip I'll actually find something! But I really love the various butterflies people are constantly adding to their cards. So I found some online...and printed them out. Cutting them out was a bit tricky at times, but I managed.

I also created the word art on my computer and printed it out...and then used fiskar fancy-edge-sciccors to cut out the scalloped look. Added some bling...and I have one card all finished!!! I must say, I'm impressed with how well it turned out!!! :) TFL

  6. Lovely creation. Thanks for thinking of us at 'Anya Ink', shame it does not contain a Greeting Farm or CC image, then it would have qualified in the comp.
