The Mixed Media Card Challenge Reminder - Beginnings


Here's a little reminder for The Mixed Media Card Challenge - Beginnings, with an option of Sequins.


I made this a few months ago for a magazine submission but it didn't make the cut.  The background is Distress Paints on mixed media paper, and the butterfly (my interpretation of 'beginning') is white yardstick coloured with Distress Inks.  I added a few sequins, gems and pearls to bling it up.

Fancy playing along with us?  Pop on over to the blog for more inspiration and the linky.
