Cupcake challenge & Creative Card Crew

I was so pleased to discover today that Cupcake challenge is going to continue after all ........ last week Lisa announced she was closing the challenge due to time restraints but Donna has stepped in so it is to continue, which is great news. Their challenge this week is Black and White and I am combining this card with Creative Card Crew challenge which this week is to use Ribbon on your project.

I love monochrome and have selected a tiny stamp from Impression Obsession B5179, which I have stamped several time on black card using versamark and detail white embossing powder and white card using versafine black and detail clear. Each square has been mounted onto a tiny silver scalloped mat cut on Cricut storybook which has then been mounted onto black gloss cardstock and then the whole piece onto a white card. The centre butterfly has been cut with an XCut punch, one in black vellum and one white, layered with silicone, wire antenna added and black swarovski crystals, plus some black spotty and white ribbon.

  8. Hi Brenda

    This is fantastic. Love it to pieces.

    My favourite colour combo and that centre butterfly is just gorgeous. That is next on my "I would like" list. (My Mum taught me not to say "I want" because "I wants never get!!!).

    So were did you get it matie? I need to investigate.

    I was a little disappointed though Brenda. You normally mention the "thorax" when talking about your butterflies and you didn't do it today. LOL!!!

    Wish I was displaying this on my blog as a card I had made.

    Love Jules xx

  12. This card is awesome! I love the monochromatic color scheme and the butterflies!

    I notice that you like to use butterflies in your cards (I do too). There is a challenge (Flutter by Wednesdays) that is just for butterflies and fairies. You might want to check it out: http://dannisdreamscrafts.blogspot.com/

  17. You do like your butterflies at the moment Brenda, but why not they are just beautiful. This card is so clever, a bit like a patchwork quilt but in monochrome, just lovely.
