Sparkly Center Step Card.

This card was created using two things that were new to me! Great to get those brain cells working. I have made several side step cards and even though I had the directions, I never made a center step card. I was challenged to do this by Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge.  The Shabby Tea Room has a 'Sparkly and Bright' challenge...use the inspirational photo to design a card with cream (or white), silver and a splash of pink! How long has it been since you created a card with 'silver and cream'? For me the answer is 'NEVER'!



A Memory Box butterfly die was used on the side panels. The lacey scallopped border across the bottom is a MFT die. The floating butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch, ribbon and pearls are from Michaels. A Sakura stardust pen was used inside the butterflies on the sides and the floating butterflies were cut from glitter paper.

This is the inspirational photo that I used to create this card.


Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
