A week since my last post? I really hadn't planned on being away that long, it's just that the weather here has been beautiful and I finally felt the urge to go outside and work in the yard. It has left me pretty exhausted. I'm still not finished diving perennials, pulling weeds and watering since our rainfall shut off like a faucet. I had a nice catalyst today. My Stampin' Success magazine came in the mail. It's the magazine for Stampin Up demos and it's always filled with great ideas.
Here's what I had to try my hand at, the paper bead in the center of the butterfly. Fun to try! This is an old craft technique. Vintage ones were often made of old magazines. I've seen them at auctions before, so finding a tutorial online shouldn't be a problem if you want to try this one, too.
I did use the sketch challenge over at Our Creative Corner as my starting point. What I didn't realize 'til after I had completed my card was how similar mine is to Vicki Burdick's card. Must have been stuck in my self conscious because it is a super cute card! Thanks, Vicki!
