Today I have a new post for Emerald Creek Dares and our new challenge. Our Design Team prompt was to make something for a single person, so a valentines of sorts, but yet not a valentine :-) So use reds and greys in your creations and throw in a heart in an unusual way if you can, then enter our challenge!
I have to let you know that I have decided to step down from the Emerald Creek Design team, for personal reasons. So this will be my last post for Kim. I want to thank her for giving me the fabulous opportunity to work with such an amazing product, to be on her very first Design Team was a privilege and just an amazing team to work with. Thank you Kim xxx
I found this lovely quote whilst surfing - it has an anonymous author so can't give credit - but whomever you may be - thank you :-)
Love is like a butterfly
It goes where it pleases
and please where it goes.
So using this quote I came up with this card. I think it works to give to someone single, don't you?!
It is a faux shaker card and a side easel card. I have used a butterfly cut file from Birds Cards. All my papers are from Polkadoodles Octavia - Frosted Winter collection.
The blossom on the butterfly is the fabulous new Fallen Blossom by Nicole Wrights Designs (Emerald Creek). I had these left over from my previous cards.
The sentiment on the piece that holds the easel card in position - is by little old me :-)
I had to add some of the gorgeous Emerald Creek Butterfly brads to the card at the top and on the stopper. You can see the shaker element peeking behind, they are hearts. And did you notice that behind the blossoms are hearts too :-)
I curled the edge of the top butterfly just to give it some dimension. All the edges of all the layers were inked with Distress Ink Pad - Vintage Photo.
That's my little bit of inspiration for you.
So now it's your turn to enter our latest challenge over at Emerald Creek Dares and you could win a $25 gift certificate to the Emerald Creek store.
You have to go check out what the Design Team have made too - they are amazing creations!
Thanks for stopping by today.
