Remember me? I hope you do! :) I am still around - I just haven't been able to craft the last couple months. Life has been challenging and crazy for me, and I am hoping it gets better soon.
Today I am sharing a card I made for a dear friend that has been struggling a lot lately. I chose to embellish the card with butterflies because they symbolize hope and have that uplifting quality. I was inspired by the February "Be Inspired" Unity Stamps Challenge - the sketch and the colors. I love, LOVE, love my Unity stamps and used several for this card!
I created the background for this card using many of my craft supplies. I used a misting mask, spray ink, dictionary paper, distress ink, a doily punch and Unity stamps. I love creating my own backgrounds! I love being able to mix different patterns and colors to get the perfect, yet imperfect vintagy look. Not sure "vintagy" is a word, but I am thinking you know what I mean! :)
I was also inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest that had a multi-colored stacked paper butterfly. You can see the card I was inspired by here. I decided to create a similar butterfly for my card!
