STILL waiting on Spring...for Pete's sake....

So....I finished this card....I took a pic of it  in the beautiful sunshine this morn...wow...then the Cleveland weather takes over later in the SAME day!
 


What a difference a day makes! lol...My card begins with the image "large butterfly" #3047 a new image from STAMPOTIQUE.  I stamped and embossed in black and colored with copics.  I have been seeing ALOT of Core-dinations cs these days so I fell in with  the group and used some!  I embossed with my cb and put this die cut "fence" (also emb ) on top.  The flowers are from a pack of K&co. "cuts" and I bought some cheesecloth from the grocery store the other day to sew on.  So simple but pretty.  I hope this card "fits" the following challenges:  "365 CARDS"= mix and match, use 5 diff products (atleast 5 manufacturers)= 1. core-dinations cs   2. K & co die cuts pack   3. Stampotique image   4. copic markers   5. cuttlebug....... ALSO the "Belli challenge"= sewing (on the side of my card and to keep the cheese cloth on)  TFL!  Hope Spring gets to you a little sooner!

Well your card is GORGEOUS...but please, keep that snow outta here! We're looking at a possible winter storm watch over the next couple of days, too...and I'm NOT liking it one bit!

Very neat, creative card, Jane. The butterfly is beautiful! I had to take some pics of our deck, as well - just couldn't believe it and it still snowed this morning in Wadsworth - amazing Ohio weather!

This is one of those cards that when I first see it pop up when your blog loaded I said WOW! What a beauty. Your butterfly is off the charts gorgeous. Then I see the drastic weather change and say WOW again. Great stuff! Best, Curt

Wowzers, Jane! First off, beautiful card. My DDIL would love it because she loves butterflies. But oh, that snow, as beautiful as it truly is, looks quite the contrast to our flowers blooming all over. I'm guessing by now you'd take the flowers. TFS and missed you posting with us. Hugs,

Gez said...

You have made a very cheerful card. Fab!
