Butterfly Circle Card


I saw the new challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog today and I just had to make some time to play tonight. I pulled out some dies and stamps and put this together to enter this in their Dry Embossing challenge.

Instead of a regular ol' card, I was inspired by the sample on the Cheery Lynn blog and I made a circle card instead. I used the Cuttlebug Highlights technique on the background and colored the butterfly image with Copic markers.

Sandy Hulsart did a wonderful tutorial on the Cheery Lynn blog showing how she makes those beautiful flowers, so I followed her tips and instructions when I made the three white flowers on my card. Sandy's directions were perfect - look how these flowers turned out!

I hope you have a wonderful week!

Stamps: Botanical Butterflies (Just Rite stamps - purchased from Classy Cards 'n Such)
Inks: Rich Cocoa Memento, Baja Breeze, Fresh Snow
CS: Baja Breeze, Soft Suede, White, Wasabi
Cheery Lynn Designs dies: Olive Branches, Fanciful Flourish, Cuties 3, Dancing Doily Lace Border (purchased from Classy Cards 'n Such)
Other: Copic markers, circle dies (Spellbinders), Finial Press embossing folder (SU)
