Pastel Butterflies

Morning crafters

I'm back today to share a card I made last night for this week's Muse challenge.  Had to wait until this morning to photograph it!

This week's muse is Therese Calvird and she has created a gorgeous card for us to use as our inspiration.

I visited my craft cupboard but came up with not much at all in the beginning so I decided to pretty much CASE Therese's card and used butterflies and flowers instead.  I love the layout and the use of pastel colours so I stayed with this theme.

Here's what I came up with...

The vision in my head was a bit different to how it turned out and I'm not particularly loving this card now but as I made it for the challenge I thought I may as well share it! :)

The camera hasn't picked up the DP too well, the yellow butterfly has a white swirl design and the blue one has a white circle design.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Butterfly Wishes Additions; Sentiment tag from unknown set
  • Ink: Versafine - Black Onyx
  • Die: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Butterfly Wishes
  • Design Paper: Dovecraft - Back to Basics IV (6 x 6 paper pack)
  • Cardstock, paper flowers and dew drops from stash

This was the inspiration card but I don't think I've done this one justice in the slightest!...

Ok, that's all from me today, I hope you all have a fabulous Saturday whatever you're up to.

Bye for now from sunny (yes sunny!) Torquay :)

  6. Anita, this is so pretty. Love the pastels.

  7. This is so pretty. I like how you used the white flowers in place of the clouds.
    I see you're on the same schedule as me, craft at night, photograph in the morning!

  8. This is such a pretty card. I think you are being too hard on yourself, but we are always our own biggest critics. Those paper pieced butterflies are really sweet.

  9. This is very pretty! I agree with Joyce, we are our own biggest critics. :)
