Fluttering By

Hi There!
How are you on this fine Tuesday?
I hope your day is off to a great start!

I'm back with another fun Challenge for Claudia and Company.

This time Tanya has challenged us to create cards with Butterflies...or as I like to call them...flutterbys. :) And the DT has also had fun getting to showcase some of the fun papers that Claudia has in the store!

For my card today I've used papers from one of the Stella Rose paper pads from My Mind's Eye. I really wanted to do something different to highlight the image, so as I sat down to create, I remembered something fun I'd seen a few weeks ago. My friend, Jeanette had used vellum on the inside of one of her cards and this reminded me that I had some that I hadn't played with in a looooong time. Thanks to Jeanette for inspiring me!

I printed the image out on vellum and then placed it over some patterned paper. Then I gave the immie a touch of color and set it all in motion with some bordering and stitching. Then I tied it all together with some wrinkle ribbon, (made by one of my DT teammies, Sherry) and a big ole flower from Prima.

I hope you'll join us for this challenge. I can't wait to see what you create! You can find most of the elements I've used for my card (including the cardstock) HERE in the Claudia and Company Store.

Be sure and check out what the rest of the DT have to share for Springtime Inspiration today! Thanks again for stopping by!
