asian butterfly


this actually started out being a cute easter card. i just got some flocking, and since i've never played with it before, i decided to make a cute fluffy bunny easter card with it!
well, we all know that i love to distress my paper, so i ink distressed the yellow CB and just kept going. i have always loved the look of those collage cards and have wanted to give it a try. it doesn't go with my fluffy bunny! :P

recipe:
stamps- swirls are TAC; butterfly is by autumn leaves; paper lantern is by ??? (there's nothing written on the block and i have no idea!); flowers are by great impressions.
ink- jim holtz walnut stain distress ink, SU Rred & Oolive
paper- DCWV pale yellow paper & SU Vvanilla CS
accessories- origami paper & hemp twine

i'm not sure if i like this or not..... it's like it's missing something! i have some dominoes, i painted one gold and mounted it on the butterfly, didn't like it so off it came! huh. i don't know!
no more trivia till someone at least makes a guess!

have a super day!

Hiya Jenn!
Great card. That's how it is sometimes, you start out with one thing and end of with something totally different, and in this case, wonderful!
Hugs,
Catherine
