No this is not a card. This is a butterfly that is called the Glasswing Butterfly. I love butterflies. I have over 30 bushes in my garden and yard. I will probably never see this one because it is from Central America and is found from
Mexico to Panama . It is quite common in its zone, but its not easy to find because of its transparent wings, which is a natural camoufloage mechanism.
This card is simple and cute. Nothing but bling, brads, & paper. I love the paper it had foil tulips. It is Wonderland Paper. Another Tuesday Morning fine. I am making two cards at a time now so I can build up my card supply. Hope that you will Tiptoe Through the Tulips with me and enjoy the card. Thanks Enfys for mentioning this store for scrapbooking items. I don't have one near but when I find one I visit.
I used my counted cross stitch thread and made 2 more flowers when I did the first card. I love, love, love this paper. It is from the DCVW Flower Shower Spring Stack. I went to Big Lots fast becoming my favorite place to go for bling. I also found these Acrylic Labels made by Paperbilities that have acrylic over the words. Added some brads to match and attached to the card layer.
This card was inspired by one I saw that had used thread to go in and out on the 3rd layer of the flower. I do counted cross stitch and have tons of thread. Purple is my favorite color. So I used it on two of the flowers and I had a scrap from a previous flower for the third. I used bling on the centers instead of brads. The friends is a clear sticker put on the ribbon which is purple with white dots.
This card was made from pattern paper purchased at Tuesday Morning. Background is yellow with black. The Bee Happy is pop dotted and pattern paper on yellow. Envelope is pattern paper also. Two brads in each corner are bee's. Inspired by my friend Jeannie. All cuts were made from "Just Because" Cartridge.
I made a card like this one before but it only had the lady bug and the background has words about friends which does not show up very well. I did another card with the phrase from "Just Because". I added some glossy border and a cute little ladybug with glitter on it from Martha Stewart.
