Butterfly - Just for you (CYCI 51)

Edited on Saturday January 10th, 2015:  WooHoo!

 

Today I decided it was more than time to try some of my new "toys" and participate in some challenges.

For the first one I was greatly inspired by a card made by Carolyn Lindenmayer for this sketch challenge. Carolyn is a new Design Team Member at CanYouCaseIt?

Here is the sketch from Eva Bussom

And here's my card, as you can see if you visited her blog and the CYCI one, totally inspired by the one Carolyn made!

 

Here are a couple of close-ups to show how intricate those butterflies are and how beautiful. For this card I used the same colors, but you can imagine how gorgeous they will be when using different cardstock or specialty papers.
     


You should definitely go pay a visit to the CYCI blog and if you want to see beautiful butterflies, a tour of Carolyn's blog is a must. She is the "butterfly lady" par excellence!

I really like that little DSP stack with all the black on one side! Means you can use it for much more than just Valentine! It is really great for card-making too. Thank you so much for stopping by and your lovely comment.

I love the layered butterfly! And one of the great things about the DSP that is black and white on one side is that you can color it with markers or Blendabilities to make it any color you want! Thanks for joining us this week at Can You Case It?!

That was the effect I wanted to create, some sort of a fluttering movement for the butterfly. Thank you so much for stopping by Terri and taking the time to leave a comment.

OMGoodness Eva! Thank you so much! I can hardly believe it. There were so many beautiful cards and the inspiration from the team was grand. Thanks for picking my card. It is a wonderful way to start the weekend!
