Butterfly card




I was in need of some inspiration, so off I went to find some challenges to play along with. I made this card using a sketch, a color challenge and a prompt. Sometimes you can box yourself in with so many restrictions, but I rather like the challenge when I'm feeling blah about my work. It sparks my creativity.

• The sketch I used is from Clean & Simple. It is Sketch #138.

• The prompt is from Card Makin' Mamas. They want you to make a card for a loved one. I can't tell you who this is for just in case they see this (I want them to still be surprised), but trust me—they are loved!


• And the color challenge is from CR84FN26. The color challenges are always the tough ones for me. I rarely do color challenges because I struggle with them, but I really liked the yellow in this one. It cheered me up. :)


Thanks for stopping by today to see my card. I hope at least one of these challenges motivates you to create something today. Play along!

I'm a huge fan of sketches too. I really like what you did with the colors, that's a tough pallet to work with! The pink flower is the perfect touch :)
