Floral Frenzy

Another fortnight has whizzed by at the speed of light and here we are with another challenge at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog.
This time our theme is Floral Frenzy. This card changed so many times during the process of making it, it's untrue - and I'm still not sure how I feel about it to be honest. I've used the silver version of Butterfly 1, overlaid it onto a piece of digital paper then used the dodge tool in photoshop to do some faux 'bleaching'. It's a lovely effect. I cut it out and shaped the body and wings before attaching it with pinflair glue. I was originally going to place it onto a very large version of the 3D Short Petal Flower, but as I was laying out card, I decided I didn't like it so created the cluster instead. I used the petals from the 3 layers of the large flower to create a border instead and that's the bit I'm not sure of. The blue bp is from the new Crinkled Papers Collection 2. Everything is available from Crafty Ann's.

I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
  • Southern Girls - to be inspired by a song (Love is like a butterfly)
  • Sweet Stampin' - Anything Goes
  • PTW - Anything goes + a bit of bling or sparkle. (although it doesn't show too clearly in the pic, the blue bp is matted onto a piece of papermania glittered hand made paper)
  • Raise the Bar - No embellishments (as in 'hardware' embellies but paper ones are allowed)
Thank you for dropping by today and I hope you'll get the chance to join us at CACB this fortnight.
