Today's card is something a little different for me. It's a shaped card. I usually make large rectangular or 6" square cards. Square cards are my absolute favorite, I don't know why, they just are. Our Daily Bread Designs is having a shaped card challenge and I wanted to give it a try.
For this card, I began with the Cheery Lynn doily and created a background shape for that. I think it really makes the doily standout. I knew I wanted something springy and butterflies were it. I used a set of butterfly dies from Spellbinders that just do not get enough use. I have a few more ideas for them in the future. The butterfly was made of two different sizes and I hand cut a body to go with it. The smallest butterfly from this nesting set is by the sentiment.
I love this sentiment and think it's awesome with the butterflies, in fact so does Our Daily Bread since it comes with a butterfly stamp.
Since butterflies go with flowers I decided to add some paper roses that I bought on clearance a while back. I also added a vine flourish and some fern leaves. I decided to keep the entire thing in a pastel color scheme so that it would follow my spring theme.
I used another Our Daily Bread Sentiment from the same set for the inside sentiment and repeated the color scheme. For me, this is a very simple interior.
