The Friday Mashup Challenge


This is the very first challenge from the Friday Mashup team and it is a great one to start off with - butterflies in any form! I chose to use this piece of DSP as it has a wee butterfly on it! The DSP is from the October Afternoon Ducks in a Row pad.

I have layered on to SU Tempting Turquoise and have used the SU embosslits Beautiful Wings for the three layers on the butterfly and the wording is from the SU set Perfect Punches. The bow is seam binding which I dyed with SU Summer Sun reinker. To finish off, I have used three different sizes of pearls.

As is usual with me, I start off by using a sketch I have seen but by the end it is just all made up differently. This card was originally portrait style and is totally changed from when I started out LOL. In hindsight, I think I should have had a longer image of the ducks.

How adorable - I just LOVE it. Those ducks are darling and that yellow bow is perfection. I struggle with baby cards. . this is fabulous.

I think the duck panel is just the right size and I love the two strips on top like that. You mastered the balance here!!
