Some things....

Hi there!! Saturday is finally here and time for a new Less is More challenge!  This week Chrissie and Mandi are challenging us to make a card that has something that moves on it.  That could mean something on your card actually moves (a spinner, pop up, etc) or the image of something that moves.   I'm not exactly sure where my card falls... probably somewhere inbetween... because the only stamping on my card is the sentiment.  The butterfly... the thing that moves... is a diecut that I attached with a rolled up glue dot so the wings actually do move. 



This card all came about because yesterday I got my club order from my SU! dealer... err... umm... demo, Jenna.  One of the things in my order was the new embossing folder Flower Garden.  When I pulled it out of the package I was a bit surprised that the image is upside down, but Jenna assures me that it is supposed to be that way. Okay... on to the card!   Many of you know that I like kraft cardstock almost as much as white cardstock so for this card I did kraft on kraft with the pop of yellow in the butterfly.   This card also works for this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge to use embossing (heat or dry) so I will be popping it into that challenge as well.

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  SU! Crumb Cake; PTI Lemon Tart; Ink:  PTI True Black; Stamps:  SU! Just Believe; SU! Beautiful Wings Embosslit; SU! Flower Garden EF; Hero Arts gems

Such a beautiful and peaceful piece of art Rosemary! Love the colours your chose and I love your embossing ... beautiful on the background and gorgeous on your butterfly!

Hello Rosie.
Brown is viewed as a dark tertiary colour and can be seen as dull,sad and wistful, but your composition and tonal qualities are excellent in this card Rosie, and used in conjunction with texture and the mellow yellow butterfly as an accent conveys warmth and successfully directs the viewer to look at your butterfly.
A wonderful design.
