Let Love Soar


The inspiration for this card came from the Runway Inspired Challenge:


I love the sheer floatiness of the dress and thought it would be good to create some spotted vellum butterflies.  And I was quite taken with the panelled wall in the background so I scored a panel to add to the base card.  Which means I can link it to Addicted to CAS, whose code word is:

And their big sister, Addicted to Stamps and More, is having a CAS party this week.

And at Hero Arts, this month's challenge is try something new.  Well I don't think I've ever die-cut vellum before.


Hero Arts F4136 Assorted Dot Border, sentiment from CL646 Happy Birthday.  Butterfly die-cuts from Clearly Besotted.

  9. The butterflies are fabulous and I also like how you created a "frame" that looks like the panels behind the model in the pic. Awesome card!

  13. Pure inspiration, Shirley ... the vellum and layers on the butterflies capture the lovely floatiness of the gown (it's so much more than a posh frock!), and the framing reflects perfectly the background wall ... stunning! Anita :)
