Butterfly Card

I created this butterfly card for Lucy's Wings & Strings challenge. The wings are obvious, but the strings are the hand-stitching down the side and the butterfly body (wrapped around wire).



I used Hero Arts cling stamps (CG130 Butterfly and CG119 Flourish) and Distress Inks / Foam Blending Tool. My card is inspired by a couple of the cards I made in Jennifer McGuire's classes in November. Can you guess which ones?

Here are some close-ups:





I have been making tags (here) all month for the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas, so it was a nice change to do something more girly! Oh, and have I mentioned how much I love my white Memories ink pad? Works like a charm!

Thanks for looking! Your comments are very appreciated!

Hugs,
dustypenny (aka Joy)
