Hello again! I’ll be continuing to post cards for the rebel challenges….and I sure hope you’re playing along too! I’m making cards between all my errands and chores…. I’m pretty sure I’ll get more crafting done since my chores are now outside ones – and it’s mostly a cloudy cool day. Not very motivating to be in the garden, I’m a fair weather gardener 🙂
The card for the second challenge is supposed to use something we’ve been hoarding. And I thought right away of these flowers – I had a whole pack of them and haven’t done a thing with them in at least a year or more! But….I made a bunch of these since I was doing one. That pack is GONE! The lacy die is by Cheery Lynn Designs – it’s challenging to get it to punch out right, and then there’s the fact that it’s huge – I’ll have to figure out some designs that’ll work. Oooh ya know, I need to go to their website and look around for sample ideas, maybe. Anyway…without further ado, the card!
I created a butterfly from two of the leaves; the body/antennae is a tiny slip of paper folded in half and slightly curled:
