The Darling "Bugs" of May!

May 19th 2011


What a great theme for the new challenge at The Daring Cardmakers Challenge Blog this week! Obviously the requirement was to incorporate some sort of a 'bug' LOL! I've chosen to use butterflies and I've made it into an Easel Card.


The little butterfly baby is from a collage sheet from Lisa's Altered Art - isn't it a gorgeous image? I've used patterned and plain papers to compliment the colours of the image and little butterflies. I've used a couple of leaf and flower punches to add some dimension as well. I found the butterfly quote at the Quote Garden site - a great resource for quotes on a huge range of 'subjects' and printed it directly onto the patterned paper and then arranged all the elements around it.


I've used Spellbinder Die Cuts to cut the 'label' shapes from black card and cream textured paper. The black card has been embossed with a Couture Creations Embossing Folder.
