Celebrate ...

Just a quick card this afternoon using the sketch from Sweet Stop Sketches #104 there is also a slight spin to this weeks sketch and that is to use 'winged things' so I absolutely love making my own embellishments and I made a butterfly to represent my 'winged thing'. I have also used stamps from Penny Black 'for you' and the paper is Paper Inklings 'family' collection.

here is a close up of the butterfly on the card

and a close up of the butterfly itself

To make it I cut 2 large circles and 2 medium circles and folded them like a 'fan' in a series of mountain and valley folds then attached it altogether with a black pipe cleaner, the antennae are 2 small bling at the end of craft wire. I have embellished the butterfly with kindy glitz.
I am also using this card for the challenge from Cupcake Crafts which is layers and as you can see this card has quite a few layers and matts. I have embossed one of the papers to give more texture to the card as set out in the Paper Sundaes challenge.

Thanks for looking and happy Easter everyone.
