Good morning, I had to take a breather yesterday. I was hoping that I was at the end of my cold from a week and a half ago but had an on and off fever starting from Monday. So far I have been free of those fevers and now able to post my card for flutterby Wednesdays. This week Danni gave us this picture as inspiration for our creation.
Here is what I came up with. I basically just took some colors from the picture to make it. The butterfly in the photo was inspiration enough for me to use a Stampin Up butterfly set that I have not used in a long time. So long that I can't remember the name of the set! LOL! I know I just used it but I am typing this just as I head off to bed so, I don't really want to get out of bed to find the name of the set. =)
I tried to get a good picture of the card especially the black part of it. I had used my cuttlebug folder for texture and it's very hard to see it. Other than that, I colored with my copics as usual and did a little paper piercing around the border of the butterfly.
Hope you are having a great day and thanks for stopping by!
Stamp: Stampin Up
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Really Rust, Neenah White CS, and Basic Black CS
