CPS 106


I love this sketch! I've been out of the loop for quite some time, but hoping to get back at it now that I am feeling better. I kept it very simple with this card. First I drew some curvy lines on white card stock, used my Cuttlebug to emboss it, layered some butterflies to give it some dimension, used my wonderful little Cuttlebug again using a die cut to get the lettering. I finished it off with some pearlecent spray I found at Walmart to give it a little shimmer. It's a really simple card but it really has a nice look to it in real life.
The butterflies are so awesome, I found a large pack of single layer foil butterflies at Walmart for $1.00, a variety of colors and sizes. I LOVE THEM! I found I can layer them and bend up the top layer to give the wings a lot more dimension. They're soo fun.

I really really like this card. Simple but cute. I like the simplicity of it yet it is elegant. Job well done. Maybe I will actually scrap one of these days....hmmm
