Happiness is Like a Butterfly...


Greetings! Another Wednesday Post for the newest challenge over at Inkspirational where this week we are creating projects based on the Photo Inkspiration below:


As I looked at this beautiful photo, I decided that I would create a card around nature, and include butterflies.  I found a piece of beautiful paper from Crafty Individuals with flowers and birds.  It is difficult to see, but I added Mustard Seed Distress Glitter to the center of many of the flowers.  The paper was matted several times and added to the card base.  The beautiful sentiment by DRS Designs quotes Thoreau and is filled with wisdom.  A compimentary image by Crafty Individuals was inked with a Stormy Sky Distress Marker (first time using this marker and I was very surprised at the color as the cap looked more bluish), stamped three times and trimmed and mounted to the card front.  Vintage seam binding tied into a bow and some Copper Liquid Pearls completes my card.  Our sponsor this month is Inspired by Stamping and one lucky winner who participates in all of the September Challenges at Inkspirational will win a $20 gift card.  Please check out Inkspirational for more inkspiration from the Design Team! Thanks for stopping by.  Hugs, Yvonne
