Couldn't help making this one...

This is my second post for the day, if you are looking for my STAMPlorations August Challenge post, please click HERE.

I really cherish those days when an idea hits me and I am able to create the card in less than 15 mins, today was one such day :) So here I am with yet another card...
 
To make this card, I stamped the stripes of varying thickness on card base in Mint colored ink. Then I die cut the thanks from the strips and adhered it back adding multiple layers to create dimension. After that I white heat embossed the butterfly in vellum, fuzzy cut it and adhered it with some twine on the card. Finally to finish my card, I added some gold sequins :)
I was inspired by the following -

Supplies used - Stamps: TAWS - Crossing lines, Martha Stewart - Butterflies; Ink - Hero Arts Mint Julep and Versamark; Twine from Recollections, Gold sequins from Ellen Hutson and Whisper Opaque white embossing powder

  1. Hey Deepti! I couldn't believe my eyes as I had a very similar card in my mind for CAS-ology challenge! Now I hot to think of a different one! ;)

    These days mint happens to be my favorite color...and your card is so very sweet! That twine is a perfect addition.
