It's All About the Flowers


Today is the 15th and this is my card this month for our The Creative Crew!  We are a group of 7 and all one team--Jeanette, Carol, Darlene, Lorraine, Terry, Tracie and me. Each month will be a new challenge posed by one of the members sending out a kit. This month, Tracie is the hostess who sent us this fun kit with this sweet image from Penny Black. She also included some fun patterned paper from The Paper Source and a couple of butterflies.  The theme is It's all About the Flowers!

I colored the cute image with my Copic Sketch Markers. I die cut it with a Stitched Rectangle from Gina Marie Designs to add a bit of detail to the rather large panel. I layered the panel on one of the foiled background panels, then a layer of gold metallic and a white card base. I then placed the black detail part of the butterfly over one of the butterfly bses Tracie sent to match the foiled background.  I added some gold pearls from Stampin' Up to the middle of the butterfly. I did not add a sentiment so this card can be given for any occasion.  This was a very fun card to make!

I hope all of The Creative Crew Gals enjoy my cards this month.  Please be sure to stop in to see what fun crafty cards are posted this month.  All of the blogs can be found on my left sidebar.  Our teammate Lorraine does not have a blog, so please check out her card in her SCS gallery.   I am sure you will enjoy all of the snowy creations this month!   

We will be back in June with a challenge that Jeanette and I will be creating!  Be sure to check in with us on the 15th to see what fun we  have planned!
