You’ve Inspired Me Card

inside the card:

For this card, I used Webster’s Pages’ Nature’s Storybook Papers, Bloomers and Storytellers alphas. The butterflies were cutout from the papers. I handmade the trinket pins using an eyepin and beads and a headpin and beads. The “crystal” bead dangling on the chain is a Maya Road Chandelier bead. The pearls are by Kaiser and the flourish bling is by Prima, but I trimmed and altered it slightly.

I entered this card in the Create challenge by Scrapbook Trends, Cards and Simply Handmade Magazines. All you need to do to enter is create a card decorated w/a butterfly and email your entry. For full details or to enter, CLICK HERE.
