Butterflies and Flowers Cheery Lynn Challenge 62



I made this card for Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 62 Winter White. The challenge called for a card which is all white.

I still don't have too many Cheery Lynn dies, so I cut every one I have with Core'dinations Pearl, and kept arranging them until I found three sets which would work together. It's not my favorite card, but in person it's very sparkly and quite pretty.

It was difficult to photograph, so I did two. One with the phone's flash, which made the Stickles look pink, and one without flash, where the light bulbs made it look yellow.

For this card, I used CL's Victorian Romance Flourish to act as a planter, Cl's Exotic Butterflies Small #2, and CL's Pair of Ferns.

Everything was mounted onto some sheer paper I had in my stash, which had white sparkly vines all through it. The paper is mounted onto a card I made with the pearl paper, and stickles were added to the die cuts and around the DP.

The background looked kind of flat, so I punched a bunch of tiny flowers and added them to the flowers in the DP, then added Crystal Stickles to the centers of the flowers.

I love your card, Kathi. Those butterflies look so pretty against the beautiful background.

If you don't mind me saying...I always take my photo's in natural daylight, and not in full sun. I find a place in our house where the light is natural, (usually a windowsill), and place a piece of white card beneath and behind my card. I never use flash, as it takes away a lot of the detail, and creates glare x
