The Butterfly Challenge

I recently ran across the Butterfly Challenge blog and the challenge hosted there was a lot of fun. The challenge requires the use of a butterfly somewhere in the project and then this fortnight the letter is Y and one can use a theme or a color or both or incorporate all seven elements into the project. Here is the current wheel:
I opted to incorporate all seven elements into my encouragement card. I started out with a blue cardcase and embossed the front with a Darice flower embossing folder. This took care of the “Your Choice” as I love how dry embossing just adds another dimension to the project. I added some flatback jewels into the centers of some of the flowers.

I stamped the sentiment that contains the word “your” as a twist on the element “you” as the second theme element and cut it out with an oval die. I cut another oval out one size larger than the one that the sentiment is on and glued the two together. I then added a strand of yarn around the sentiment. The yarn meets the requirement of “yarn” as the third theme element and “yale blue” as the one color element. I cut another oval out of white fun foam and popped the sentiment up.

I then added the butterflies cut out of “yew” and “yellow” colored cardstock to meet the final two color elements of the wheel.

This card was a fun difference for me in that there is no pencil colored image on it. But I enjoyed making it a lot.
General supplies:
Paper Studio cardbase and coordinating envelope
White, yew and yellow cardstock
White fun foam
Sentiment stamp from my stash
Oval dies from my stash
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
