Two weeks!

Wow. I can't believe it's been two weeks since I've posted. I don't know how that happens. Hi everyone.

Yesterday was the inspiration challenge on SCS. I searched through the selected web site and found several pieces that I thought I could use, finally settling on The Key to the Butterfly Garden Assemblage Skeleton Key Brooch as my inspiration. How could I not pick something with butterflies? I really enjoyed making this card, although it did take me a long time to do it. I had it partially done, but had to stop and get lunch ready for the family and then I had my bobbin lace guild meeting, so I didn't get to finish the card until I later in the evening.

I knew the lattice pendant die from Spellbinders would be perfect for this card. I used it to die cut and emboss some brushed copper cardstock. I also used Spellbinders paper cut snowflakes die for the piece in the front. The butterflies are from Innovative Stamp Creations set called friendship. I stamped them with black stazon on white and sponged tempting turquoise on them and then cut them out.

The layers on the card are white, cool caribbean and tempting turquoise. The corners of the caribbean layer are punched with square steps corner pocket punch. I hadn't used that punch in a long time, but realized that it matched the lattice die quite well. The little circles in the corners are just punched from the copper cardstock.

The wings on the butterflies are all popped up.

The sentiment is from a retired SU set called noteworthy.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Be blessed.
