Hope you're all having a good weekend out there in Blogland.
This is a card I made last week – I set myself a challenge to pick the first piece of paper/card out of my box at random and use it in a card. Oh what a challenge it was J I thought I was gonna go crazy.
I picked the gold paper (it is quite sparkly in real life but it's not showing up very well here). I then decided to kinda base it on the Splitcoaststampers sketch 299 it's only kinda cos I got my layers backwards (oops).
I mounted the gold onto some purple cardstock and stuck it to the card. I've had these chipboard butterflies in my stash for ages but have never been sure what to do with them until now. I embossed another bit of the purple card and stuck the butterflies onto it with some glue dots.
I printed the pale blue card from my pc and then stuck on a large purple flower (this is actually the wrong side – the other side has dots and sparkles on it but I wanted it plain), layered it with another smaller glitter flower and then a button. I wasn't sure about it and kept messing about with different embellishments but I finally settled on these and I really like it now. It's much more sparkly in real life, it's just a pity you can't really see it here.
