A cure for the winter blues challenge.Spring is just around the corner,right?I love My Mind's Eye 6 x 6 paper packs. So I dug out my packs in search of some pretty spring blues. I spied Miss Caroline with the butterflies on the cover and the ideas started flowing.I dug out my butterfly punch that has been waiting for an opportunity to shine. Today was the day! I punched out a bunch of the tiny beauties from the tiny aqua blue dot paper. I stamped with versa mark ink the twig wreath from Raisin Boats Thankful set #10229 A fun way to re-purpose a fall stamp set! I then embossed it with copper embossing powder.( I did not have brown) I then die cut the wreath with a scalloped circle spellbinders die. I also die cut the brown mat as well as the doily mat using spellbinders dies.I attached 2 folded sheer ribbons with a small pearl brad.I cut the striped paper to be slightly smaller then the card distressing it around the edges. I put a piece of Crocheted trim from My Mind's Eye at the bottom of the card. I die cut the flower with the carnation die from spellbinders and layered it with some netting flowers I die cut with an Accucut die putting them all together a brad from My Mind's Eye also.I punched out 3 of the larger butterflies and attached them along with the flower on top of the lace.
I hope this melts a bit of your Winter Blues!
