Butterfly Hello

I made a card today for many challenges – This was fun for me because it all started with a sketch!!

This is my card:


I used some black pattern paper that was in my scrap box and the stamp set I used is called Gladsome Garden by Stampin’ Up! An oldie but the butterfly is my favorite!! I split the paper and mounted it with foam squares to my card front! Used rhinestones in various sizes and a small hello banner , also from SU!,  completes my card!

Linking up to these awesome challenges:

    Ooo, my favorite color combination! How did you know? LOL! I love how you added in some sparkle with the rhinestones. It makes it seem as if the butterflies are flying about. I also love the angled design between the pieces patterned paper. It adds so much interest and dimension to the card. I give this an A+. :)

    I love it, Taunya, and I love that you started with the sketch and made it work for all those challenges!! It is sometimes super easy, huh? It just takes a few minutes to scope out the favorite challenges and I’m always gobsmacked by how often they line up with whatever card I happen to be posting. I call it Card Karma!! Have a great weekend!! Hugs, Darnell
