Hi Again

It has been a few weeks for me.  Lots of things have been going on in my life so Ihave neglected my blog.  I guess I have just been doing minimal creating.  I am trying to get ready for a visitor from Germany and that will end the use of my craft room for a couple of weeks.  That is okay though I am looking forward to her visit. 

I started a class today at My Creative Classroom,com.  It is a class using Spellbinder Nestibilities.  I have to say I am impressed.  The more I look at the card I made, the more I think it should be framed but then where to hang it.  Will you take a look at this card.  It is 3 dimensional so it wouldn't go in an envelope very well.  It also is not the typical size card I make.  I also am somewhat copying the instructors design, Catherine Scanlon.  Want to give credit where it is due. 

I do like to add bling so there are crystals on the flowers and the tinybufferfly holding the ribbon.  I added pearl accents to the two other butterflies.  The image was a free download from the class that I just printed on cardstock and then colored with Copic Markers.  I used Tim Holz distress ink in Spun Sugar to make my pink paper on the lower portion of the card and around the focal image.  I also used distress ink in Linen to antique the ribbon, butterflies and the pink scalloped paper. It was a lot of fun making this project and learning how to use the Nestibilities better.
