Butterflies....

Hi Ya!  Here with a card for a couple of challenges:  ODBD Shining the Light challenge to do some paper piercing (not piecing... although I did do some paper piecing) and The Paper Player's sketch challenge.   I didn't get around to making something for last week's ODBD's challenge and really wanted to play along this week.   But... I was feeling a bit stumped because I have not done alot of paper piercing on my cards.  When I have given it a try things have ended badly for the poor card.  So I thought I would just keep it really simple and do piercing on just a small portion of my card.   The Paper Players sketch this week was the perfect vehicle (so to speak) for my card.



I used the ODBD set Faith for the main image and the ODBD single butterfly stamp, as well.  The single butterfly has a matching die, but I didn't use it this time and just simply trimmed out the butterfly by hand.  The color scheme was dictated by the papers I used from the Webster's Pages WonderFall & Hollywood Vogue collection pack.  Because everything was quite muted with this card I decided to add some Diamond Stickles to the butterflies.  

Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Fine Linen & Vintage Cream; PP:  Websters Pages; Stamps:  ODBD Faith & Single Butterfly; Ink:  Ranger Bundled Sage & Old Paper Distress inks; Diamond Stickles; SU! Photo corner punch
