Photo Inspiration Challenge

Another week and another great challenge at Fab'n'Funky Challenges.  We are having a Photo Inspiration Challenge and what a photo!

I absolutely love it!  So, on to my card, I took inspiration from the colours used in the photo and also the butterfly. 

I began by embossing the front of the card using my Cuttlebug and the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I coloured the three rows to the left with Promarkers in Rose Pink, Canary and Grass.  The black die cut is from Spellbinders Butterfly Circles and was cut and embossed with my Grand Calibur.  I used the Stamping Up! Embosslits to cut the butterflies and then sanded them with my sanding block.  The coloured card was originally bought from Create and Craft TV and I have used it in many projects.

The sentiment was computer generated as I didn't have a stamp for this greeting.  I made this card for my friend Katie-Ann who is recovering from having her wisdom teeth removed.  Ouch!  She was really dreading it so I hope this cheers her up.  I cut the greeting with another of the Spellbinders Butterfly Circles dies.  This set is truly beautiful and if it is possible to have favourites this is definitely in my Top 3!

Happy Crafting,
