Diamonds and Butterflies


This card doesn't really look like my typical card, but I like the way it came out. It's the result of combining three different challenges.

Etsy Inspired Challenge EIC93 is a shop called White Birch Designs, which sells lovely jewelry, mostly made from beads. I was inspired by this one called Black and White Flower Necklace. I loved the combo of black, white and silver, especially the bold diamond shapes. That was pretty much the guiding element in putting the card together.

I used the sketch from Card Positioning Systems, CPS 172. And for RES-Q Challenge RESQ50 -- a celebration of getting to the 50th challnge (we had a choice of several old challenges to choose from), -- I chose adding a felt embellishment, because I thought the pink butterfly brought some real life and contrast to the card.

I used two different diamond stamps -- the one embossed in silver on the left is from DRS; the one on the right is from Studio G. The sentiment is from SU. Other ingredients: silver brads, silver metallic paper and nesties.
