Dazzling Diva #68 You are Fabulous

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

It's Wednesday, and you know what that means...time for another Dazzling Diva Challenge! Here's our inspiration for our weekly challenge:

As, I'm making my card, we are under another snowfall warning.  I have my fingers crossed that it will miss us.  So, in an effort to focus on something much more enjoyable...flowers and butterflies it is!

I have some gorgeous new floral paper that had the feel of the florals on the cup, so that's where I started. Next I die cut the butterflies, so I could place my craft metal behind them.  Then I added a little embossed butterfly trail.  The sentiment is a die cut that comes with the paper package.  I finished it off with a few rhinestones.  Yes, I know...rhinestones Lee-Anne???  I can't put sequins on every card I make...can I??? *grin*

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Gina K. ivory and Kaisercraft All That Glitters
Ink:  none
Stamps:  none
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Butterflies die set, misc. rhinestones and

  5. This is a masterpiece, Lee-Anne! That paper is stunning and you have managed to showcase it even with the addition of your beautiful stitched border butterflies and trails! I especially love how you have placed your round sediment in the corner like that! If you want, you should edit your post and enter Mrs. A.'s butterfly challenge (Google "butterfly spot challenge."). I am delighted to have you playing in my NBUS Challenge #4, my friend!! Hugs, Darnell
