Eclectic Grand Butterfly

Hi!  There's a lot going on with this larger-than-A2-size card today.  It is rather eclectic.  My inspiration was the jumbo half of a butterfly, cut from a DCWV stack, Vintage Collage.


Ugh.  Just realized I never took a picture of the inside, which says "You make me smile."  The outside sentiment makes sense when you know what's inside.

See how the butterfly shines?  It came like that in the paper pad.


Wanted you to see the sprinkling of matte gold sequins near the "you" sentiment, best seen in the photo below:


It's not among my fave cards, but it IS different.  Sometimes you just need to do stuff outside your comfort zone!

Have a great day!

Well, it certainly is among MY fave cards! The butterfly is stunningly beautiful and I love the paper! I think it all fits together perfectly. DCWV has some of the most gorgeous paper.

Hi Sweetie! You should stretch your limits more often because your butterfly card is a true gem! I agree; it's good to create something out of your comfort zone from time to time. But I am the kind of girl to stick to her favorite items and patterns:) I admire that you took the jump and did it. And your card is lovely ( I hope my comment makes sense because I am not sure if this is proper English. But I hope you know what I mean)
Have a great day; I am thinking of you and sending a big hug!
