OCC - Charmed Butterfly


This is my card for today's Inspiration Challenge over at Our Creative Corner. The challenge is to pick one of your favourite embellishments and take inspiration from it - easy peasy! My inspiration was this sweet little pewter butterfly charm :D I chose to use this cute butterfly to match from my Whipper Snapper Designs set called Love at Home (Anna Wight Designs). I was severely lacking in a sketch that worked with my card so I went to Julee Tilman's Mojo Challenge blog and chose Mojo72 to work with. If you haven't been to the Mojo blog, you are missing out! Julee is the queen of sketches!

My butterfly has been embossed, watercoloured with re-inkers , cut out and popped up. I thought that I would give the trio of flowers embossing folder at try, but I'm not sure that I like the effect of it 100% - it may still grow on me though *grin*

Don't forget to pop by the Our Creative Corner blog to play along and to check out what the other girls have been designing just for your viewing pleasure :) - We have a new designer to introduce you to as well *wink*

This is just beautiful!! Everything about it is elegant and well put together! I especially like the way you tied the ribbon and hung the charm from it! I just may have to lift that idea!
