Darling Butterfly



BCA card set

     Hello my crafty friend, ty for stopping by my blog today, glad to have you. I am a member of a great site called "The Outlawz" and they have a new challenge that starts everyday and each challenge runs for one week. A new challenge was posted for Monday's Greeting card challenge and it is in honour of breast cancer awareness month. Love it.....!!!!
     I started one of these cards last week but everything I was doing wasn't working so I set it aside. Today I went to start working on the twisted Thursday challenge and the card caught my eye. BAM...... a set of these popped into my head along with this design. I love it, what do you think?

      I used the largest Labels 10 Spellbinders die for the base in white,  cut the DP, mounted and added gems to the scallops. I used Spellbinders Ribbon banners and cut mini letters from a quickutz alphabet. The birds are a Peachy Keen Die, love that bird :) sooo cute. I cut ea. bird twice in pink, inked edges and along the detail cuts in the wings and tail feathers to make them stand out. Glued just the bodies together not the wings or tail feathers so they could be gently curled up for a fluttering effect. I thought these would make a great gift set and I plan on making a box for them, not sure if I will buy a $ store box to decorate or make a something with paper.  I  will edit later with the company name of the DP's, I know they came in a BCA kit last yr but can't remember the name of the company. i hope it's on the paper cause I don't have the pkging. 

     I hope you've been inspired to create something beautiful with your stash today. Thank you so much for stopping by to see what I made. If you like it please leave me a comment, I appreciate your taking the time to visit and your words of encouragement. Hope your having a scrap happy day!  :)
