Butterfly Wishes

My next two posts were inspired by the color challenge at Colour Create, using Black, mint green, gold and cream.  Unfortunately I didn't get them posted in time to qualify for that one.  But I do have other challenges I incorporated into it as well.  Every once in awhile you see a color scheme that you just love.  So far I've made two cards from two 12X12 pieces of paper and there's still more to make a couple more, thank goodness!  I was able to incorporate one of my favorite images ever which is "Butterfly" drawn by the talented Priscilla, creator of CDAC and Midnight Madness Challenge Blog.  You can find many more images like this, especially if you like Victorian.  Thanks for stopping!

Image - "Butterfly" by Priscilla Styles
Paper - Creative Imaginations (from my Swirlydoos Kit)
Ribbon - Walmart
Embellishments - I used lotsa glitter and gems.  I even glittered an old black button I had.  The glittery placque was also from my kit as well as the stamped corners and gems.  I used Prisma's to color.

Flutterbye Wednesday - Anything Goes
