It's Thursday again - and time for a new Fusion Challenge. Let's take a look! We've gone all springy with the butterflies in the inspiration photo!
I was inspired to create my birthday card using both the photo and the sketch this week. I'm trying to use 'stuff' I already have in my craft room - and this butterfly paper by Basic Grey needed to come off the shelf!
The 'birthday' die is from PTI and I was able to manipulate it into a fun curve since some of the letters are only connected by a small piece. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch that I covered with Glossy Accents to give it a nice shine. I wasn't sure what color to pull from the DP for my butterfly - so I also punched a grey and a black one. Since I chose the Terrecotta Tile color for the front - I used the other two butterflies on the inside of my card.
