Picture Challenge

Welcome to another week of the DOstampers Challenge Thursday.

Sometimes the picture challenge is a CHALLENGE for me.  This one took me a while to figure out what I wanted to take out of it to create my card.  So I finally decided to take the colors and create my card.  I hope you like it!

Thinking Spring!!!

I have seen this type of card in my blog surfing and have always wanted to make one.  There are so many different punches that you could use to create such a card.  I chose the Elegant Butterfly Punch in hope that Spring will be here soon in MN.

To make this card it is pretty straight forward.  I cut my 3 different color strips to 1 x 4 1/2.  Then I punched out the Elegant Butterfly at the bottom of each strip.  I then put the Night of Navy strip and butterfly on 1st.  Followed by the Soft Sky strip and butterfly.  That way I could center the Crumb Cake strip and butterfly.  I then took my paper snips and trimmed off the overhang of the strips on the top.  This way they were all even.  I did use a dimensional on each of the butterfly's to give them a little pop!  And of course you have to add a little something to the butterfly's...I use the Pearl Basics.
