Inside Out

It is Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and this week our challenge to you is called Inside Out.  We want you to make a card and finish the inside as nicely as you would finish the outside.  I love this butterfly and decided to make it the focus of my card this week.  I added lots of gems on the front but didn't add any on the inside butterflies so that the card would close properly.  I have also made sure to leave space for a handwritten message.

A couple of weeks ago, I received the most wonderful package of crafting goodies from several of my teammates from Sugar Creek Hollow.  I oohed and aahed over them and then I found homes for everything but it wasn't until I had everything put away that I realized I should have made notes of who sent what.  So as I use the different gifts, I will be saying it was a gift but I apologize that I won't be able to say who it came from.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

AI Factory - Monochromatic
Rainbow Lady  - Shabby Chic

  1. Cec, these shades of blue are amazing! I love how you printed the butterfly smaller for the inside. The border punch you chose is perfect. It makes me think of butterfly wings.

  2. Cec,
    This is beautiful in blue! Love the main focus of the butterfly in the front and the all the sparkle is a great added touch. The inside is fab with the matching butterflies.

  3. A gorgeous creation Cec, fab butterflies (which I love) and a super idea to have the inside as lovely as the outside. (Will remember this) Thanks for joining us at Rainbow Lady's challenge this week.
