My card was inspired not only by the season of Easter but also two challenges. I used the a butterfly stamp set that I've had for a while but was still untouched. Butterflies are a symbol of the Resurrection so worked nicely for my Easter theme.
I tried the pleated skirt technique several weeks ago and now enjoy using pleating as demonstrated by the diagonal band on this card.
After posting my photos, I noticed a black spot on the enlarged images. Thankfully, the spot is NOT on my card. (I have since cleaned my camera lens.)
1. Color Throwdown #381: This is my second time entering this challenge and I'm eager to try again. The Design Team samples are so creative. I used Crumb Cake cardstock because I did not have Kraft paper.
2. Sugar Pea Designs Sugar Sketch #42: This is my first time entering the Sugar Pea challenge. Their blog and
store are new to me. Maybe I'll get lucky and win a few of their products!
For challenge fun, visit CTD381 and SPDSS42!
