Let it Be

Sunday, January 5, 2014

Fusion Card Challenge is back with some old friends and new faces (YAY) and I just had to play along.  I usually go for the sketch but today I decided to make a card inspired by the colors.  The sketch came to me from Unscripted Sketches.



Sometimes the inspiration for a card comes to me by accident.  I had decided early on that I wanted to use a butterfly on my card and as I was flipping through my dies to find the one that matched the butterfly stamp, I found this flower outline and I thought it would make an interesting layer under the butterfly.  This made me realize that it's probably a good idea to periodically check out what I've got in my stash because it's easy to forget what I have.  Hmmm, I think this might be a good crafting resolution for the new year.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Beautiful Butterflies (Papertrey Ink); Let it Be (Verve)
Paper:  Smoky Slate, Groovy Guava, Basic Gray, Ginger Blossom DSP, Urban Oasis DSP (SU)
Ink:  Groovy Guava (SU); Onyx Black (Versafine)
Accessories:  Beautiful Butterflies die (Papertrey Ink); Tilth Floral die (Memory Box); black rhinestones (KaiserCraft); washi tape

I think I need to piggyback onto your New Years resolution Jen...I think we crafters all have so many different things we can't possibly remember them all! So glad you stumbled upon that flower outline as it was the perfect layer for under your butterfly. Love the washi tape you used and how you really captured the essence of the inspiration photo.

Love this Jen! what a great idea to put that flower outline die cut behind your butterfly- I too have SO much stuff I forget I have!! Of course it would help to clean up my craft room a bit too!!! Thanks so much for playing with Fusion this week!

What a winning take on the Fusion photo, Jen, and the US, too, for that matter! I loved reading how your card "made itself" because that happens so often to me. Sometimes you really do feel like there is a Mr. Mojo inside your head (or a hamster!) guiding your hands and it's a beautiful thing! Hugs, Darnell
