thank you







happy friday, ya'll!

i'm busy painting the trim on the bathroom window but while it's drying, i wanted to share this card i made for embellishmagazine.com's color challenge with butterflies.

now i love my martha stewart butterfly punch, but this time i chose to use a much larger butterfly for my focal point. this is a butterfly that i drew in adobe illustrator some time ago when i wanted a big butterfly but did not have a die-cut for one...so i created my own little template. i do that a lot...trying to save money and since i am a graphic designer... :0)

so anyhow,this was an easy card...just traced the butterflies and cut them out, cutting inside the lines on the polka-dotted paper so it would be slightly smaller. i found some great big sparkly glitter at wal-mart a couple weeks ago, so i added that onto the wings for a little glitz! the scalloped edge behind the kraft card is actually fiscars treading water punch (i think it's called that) but i just hid the portion with the little dots. love how it turned out!

hope you all have a fantasic weekend. i will be doing more painting and organizing the loft and getting things ready for a yard sale in a couple of weeks hopefully! ooooh and playing with my new baby kitties!

xoxo andie...
