Butterfly Spiral


Have to thank my Mom for this card. About a year ago she gave me a advertisement for Fruit of the Loom. It looked like pretty butterflies hanging around on acetate strips. She told me that she thought of me and wondered if I could use it as inspiration for a card. Well, I finally got around to trying it out. Thought the spiral card technique would work the best. So I cut a circle out of acetate and trimmed it into a long spiral. I used the new Cloud paper from A Muse for the inside of the card and thought the butterflies punched from the Doodlebug sugared paper would look so pretty floating around in the sky. The outside of the card HAD to be a flower! Used my brand new gerber daisy stamp, also from A Muse and did my best to shade it with Copic markers. If you click on the photo it enlarges to give you a better view. It was a really fun card to make and I think it may have brought me out of my recent slump.

Have to thank my sister too. She helped me figure out how to put 2 photos on one page! Amazingly easy to do but I have never known how to do it. You learn something new every day.
