I'm posting and listing a new card that I created yesterday. I'm also going to enter it in a few challenges that I found in my reading list. How lucky am I that folks are having challenges that fit my card. We must be in sinc.
Can't Get Enough Butterflies
The card is pretty basic but I think it turned out rather pretty. I have a thing for orange and especially a rusty colored orange. A diverse color perfect for Spring and Autumn...what the heck..perfect for anytime of the year. I had purchased these Spring themed die-cuts by K&Company back in December thinking that they would be perfect for my cards. They are so pretty and very vintage looking. The main image I used for the center of the card is from Susan Winget Spring Blossom Seed Packet Die-Cut Cardstock. It has touches of glitter on it. So pretty. The leafs and butterflies borders used at the bottom of the card are also from K&Company. I ripped open the package so fast to put in my storage I forgot to keep a tag with the name of the adhesive borders. Sorry.

Materials: two layers of cream cardstock for base sponged with cocoa stamping ink; cantaloupe cardstock by bazzill basics; green woodland by dcwv; k&company die cuts; recollections' boutique fleus floral embellishment; vintage lace; machine stitching
I also used this beige vintage lace that I purchased from EKSupplies (one of my fellow Etsy sellers). She's got some great stuff. You should check her out when you get a chance. I had to hand stitch the lace on the card which took a little time. I think it adds a nice vintage touch to the card. I have also added machine stitching to the inside and back of the card.
