Butterflies and the May CCC!!!

Hey!!!

Hope you are doing good.

Today i have a special card to share with you.... Not because it's made for someone special, infact i had no one in particular when i made it.... but because i am quite fond of it and because i made it some considerable time back but have not been able to post it.... 

and you know why??? 

Because this card is an exact copy of a card i saw on a blog... and all this while i have been going bonkers for 2 reasons.... firstly because i couldn't decide whether it was the right thing to post it on my blog when the design and idea was someone else's... but then a close friend advised 'copying is the sincerest form of flattery' and i thought that really made a lot of sense as long as i am not taking undue credit for anything...

and second because i just couldn't locate the original artist's name... and now that i have, i am so happy and proud to present Sarah Martina, an absolutely amazing crafter who need no introduction and definitely not from me :) Love her work and she has been a true inspiration to me...

So, without further ado... here's the card!!!

  
































Papermania PPs, MS punch, rhinestones, silhouette cut butterflies(Thanks Spardha), glitter spray

I quite liked the outcome and couldn't help but share with you guys (despite of the fact that it is not my design/color idea originally)... 

Next up is the super gorgeous card i recd. from my CCC buddy Dwita Siregar of Indonesia for the month of May. She is a sweetheart and a super kind gal... she even sent me loads of doily punch outs which i have completely freaked out on... Thanks buddy!!! 


Isn't that a beauty...:)

Thanks for visiting!!!

  16. Curve borders are best for creating attractive card, it is peerless idea. Like the way you have arranged the rhinestones.
