Nina is the hostess for the new Crafty Friends Challenge and she gave us this gorgeous photo to be inspired by:

Freckled Fawn is sponsoring this challenge. Each entry in the challenge will also be an entry in a raffle to win a $15 gift certificate from them. They have gorgeous Washi Tapes in their store. The yellow and green one featured on my card are from Freckled Fawn.

I took the inspiration pretty literally and incorporated the stripes, the butterfly and the colors shown on the photo. I started by about 2″ (eyeballed it) of a 3″ x 5″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with the Simplicity M-Bossabilities folder. Next I took out my Scor-Buddy and first scored a line, then went along the next 1/8″ spaced line with my Cutter Bug Bee (to create the dots), then added another score line. Under that score line I added gingham red ( Elmer’s), the yellow sunburst and green polka dotted Freckled Fawn Washi tapes.

One of the sentiments of Butterfly Kisses was stamped inTuxedo Black Memento Ink to the lower right of the panel. The upper right and lower left corner were rounded. The layer was first adhered to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Kraft cardstock, then to the card base a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock folded in half.

A solid Butterfly shape was cut out out of Echo Park’s Paradise Beach Paper, the detailed one out of Solar White cardstock. The detailed one was adhered to the solid shape and Diamond Stickles was added where the orange paper showed through. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone swirl under the butterfly and more rhinestones from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones finish off my card.

    Hugs and smiles
