The Card Concept Challenge #7 - Use a Butterfly on your card

This weeks inspiration photo for The Card Concept Challenge is so gorgeous, I predict a large gallery of beautiful cards featuring this very popular subject. Have fun with butterflies.



Here is my card inspired (rather directly) by the inspiration photo. For some reason ( I am not a very well informed photographer)  my image proportions are shorter and wider than the actual card. I will have to get to the bottom of this?? I am sure my mirrors do this to me as well!!

When I looked at the inspiration image, the elements that popped into my mind were the butterfly (hmmmm!), wood grain, trellis and curly cues. I added a light splatter of turquoise ink (still trying to control those little suckers) and a few wee sequins. The button with twine and the two studs from Prima finished the card off. I am not sure who the butterfly is from. Its an old set of red rubber cling stamps. The trellis is Spellbinders and the sentiment is Hero Arts.




Have fun creating over the next two weeks. Stay safe.
