Fluttering Bye


...and a very warm welcome to Verna of VA's Creative Clutter 
and Christine Kiehl.  If you have a blog, Christine, I would love to follow you.

I mentioned in my last post that was away due to the illness of a family member - unfortunately they passed away, and there has been a funeral to attend, and all the associated travelling.  

I made this card some time ago, and cannot remember which inks I used, sorry

My editing program is being a pain at the moment and it has had cut off the bottom of the card 😞
The mask I used is from STAMPlorations (it is linked directly)

I used some foil paper under the opposing corners of the butterfly panel to add interest

The sentiment (a magazine freebie) was white embossed on a snippet of  card sponged with the dark ink, and mounted over some more of the foil paper

I added three different colours of bling, white pearls, and clear and champagne rhinestones

I added a trimming of the focal panel to the inside.

Maxine: (1) Sorry to hear that your relative has passed. May God give you and others comfort and peace. (2) Your card is beautifully made! So very well coordinated and balanced! The little bits of bling and thin accents of foil add just the right ratio of shine and glam to not overshadow the butterflies, sentiment, and pretty teals and blues. Lovely!!!

I am sorry to hear about the loss in your family. I hope the travelling etc is uneventful, and all goes smoothly.
Your card is very pretty. I love butterflies and they always work well on cards. The little pearls and gem stones just give it a little lift too. Kate x

Lovely use of bling - not too much, just enough and very effective on those butterflies.
A lovely card again Maxine.
God Bless, Neet xx
