Believe in Yourself!

April 23rd 2012
Some more inspiration for our Anything Goes Challenge at Art With No Boundaries - please remember to read our rules before linking up your creation!!


I've used another great Solitaire image from CS Designs - Mysterious Butterfly along with some cute little butterfly graphics from Dezinaworld. The sentiment is also from CS Designs.

This is also perfect for the new Macabre Monday Challenge at the Haunted Design House Blog "Eye Can See You" as the Mysterious Butterfly Solitaire image is all about the "eyes" - they really stand out behind the mask & I've used bold colours to give a bit of a "Gothic" look - I like a bit of darkness in my creations every now and again!


I like the clean look of this card with the red/white/grey & black. And becasue I have used the "Butterfly" masked Solitaire image and butterfly graphics I am also entering this card in the new Our Creative Corner "Butterflies" Challenge. I think the metamorphasis from caterpillar to butterfly is truly a miracle and I love this butterfly quote:

If nothing ever changed
There'd be no butterflies.

Your card makes me realize that gray is an underused color. Love the allusion to metamorphosis.

Sharon, I love the colors you've used on Solitaire Mysterious Butterfly, your right she looks very goth. The layout makes it look so much more than a card, this one is suitable for framing.
