It is time for a new challenge at Joan's Gardens. Joan is in the hospital, but she pre-posted all the information about the challenge and added the link so you can add your cards to her blog. The challenge requirements are only listed here on my blog.
The challenge this week is to create a card with butterflies.
For my card I used the Cheery Lynn "Chicken Wire Frame" over a piece of aqua blue card stock. The pretty die cut in the center of the card is the new Marianne Design "Vintage Fan 1". There are two pieces to this set but I only used the fan piece and not the "angel" wing. You can make a beautiful fan with this die cut. In the center is a sentiment from a JustRite stamp set.
In the upper left corner I added the Memory Box "Kaleidoscope Butterfly" with the Memory Box "Moonlight Butterfly" below. On the right side above the flowers is one of the Cheery Lynn "Exotic Butterfly Small" butterflies.
The pretty rose was die cut using the Spellbinders "Spiral Blossom Four" die. Two Cheery Lynn "Cuties Fringe 4" flowers were added on each side of the rose. On the left side I added the Marianne Design Mistletoe (LR0245) and glued on flowers from the Cheery Lynn "Build A Flower #2" embellishments. (I think this piece makes a great piece of greenery for adding little flowers.) Above the rose, I used one of the Marianne Design "Decorative Elegance" embellishments and glued on the tiny Cheery Lynn "Baby's Breath" flowers from the Build A Flower #2 Embellishments. Tucked around the rose are leaves from the Cheery Lynn "Flourish Leaf Strip".
I hope you will join us this week for our challenge. I know Joan will enjoy viewing all your entries while she is recovering from her surgery.
