Today is Jen's birthday and therefore this week's Less is More challenge is to make a birthday card she would like http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/week-125-happy-birthday.html
What to put on my card was easy - it had to feature butterflies - and that made me think of the sketch this week at CASe this sketch which had 3 little elements that would suit 3 little butterflies http://casethissketch.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/case-this-sketch-33.html I also LOVED this week's colours in the Play Date Cafe so decided to throw those into the mix too http://theplaydatecafe.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/one-zesty-color-combo.html and this is the resulting card - hope you like it Jen and are having a fabulous time in Istanbul.
I started with the small butterfly die from clearly besotted and die cut 9 from a pale orange card. I inked each with spiced marmalade distress ink to warm up the colour to match the colour scheme. On 3 of the butterflies I stamped one of the butterflies from CB's butterfly additions in potters clay ink. I folded those 3 in half, plus 3 of the others and then layered them up to give me 3 dimensional butterflies using lawn fawns lawn trimmings between the layers to make antennae. I mounted them onto a lime green panel embossed with my new SU folder and mounted that onto some teal washi tape torn to give a rough edge. The sentiment is from CB's Spring Blooms stamped in teal zeal.
As I mostly used Clearly Besotted products on this card, I'll also make this a last minute entry to their first challenge - which is anything goes - and you still have just over a day to play along if you fancy http://www.stampingsharing.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/clearly-besotted-challenge-1-anything.html
