Card for CPS112

Here is the sketch over at the CPS blog

Here is my card











This card sort of evolved as I went along. Initially my plan was to have 2 pop-dotted cupcakes in the circle holes..but I just couldn't get them to look right. So move on to plan B...faces...nope didn't work...move on the plan C butterflies!
This is a 8 x 3 1/2 card. I used CTMH's black cardstock and Daydream lv 2 paper pack. The butterflies are cut using a Martha Stewart punch and the hole's in the card are cut with the Coluzzle...that knife cut through 4 layers! I used a Sakura Gelly Roll silver star glitter pen to put dots on the butterflies and carry the design of the paper onto the slash in the center. The photo doesn't show it but it is really glittery. The pearls came from Hobby Lobby I think but I have lost the package and don't know who made them.
I think that is it on the card...I am happy with it and it looks really cute IRL. I esp like the butterflies on the black CS when the card is open. Now I just have to finish the inside, which I am really bad at doing.
I hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday, and if you haven't already, you need to check out the Creative Bliss Blog by Jeanne. This is one talented lady who can crochet and cross stitch like nothing I have seen...and her papercrafts are gorgeous.
Enjoy!

I love this card! It is so cute.. I haven't tried to fix my frame yet, because I forget to take it to church with me. I'll keep you posted though.
Thanks!

Sarah, I LOVE this card!! Every. Single. Thing. about it! Your plan C should have been Plan A (because you cannot go wrong with butterflies in my humble opinion) because those butterflies are fantastic!

Thanks for the kind words about my blog, Sarah! You are SO sweet! Hugs!
