Butterfly Challenge GD - Mid-Challenge Inspiration

Hello, everyone.  Before I get started, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Pia - so happy to have you here!  I am popping in from my blog break today to share some inspiration for Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge.  I am the Guest Designer this month, and you might remember that our theme is Butterflies and Washi Tape.  Normally the challenges run for two weeks, but this challenge will run for four weeks, so you still have another two weeks to dust off your washi tape and play along!


I managed to use four kinds of washi tape on my card, two black-and-white, one sparkly silver, and one sparkly black.  The butterfly stickers are also sparkly black. I stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings, added a few sequins, and rounded all four corners of my card.  

Please join the fun over at the Butterfly Challenge and remember to include Butterflies and Washi Tape. Thank you, Mrs. A, for having me as your Guest Designer!

  34. Kitty, just saw this over at Mrs. A's while visiting for the CCClub. Had to pop over to say how much I like the design and the fabulous look you've created with the black & white. I only bought 1 roll of Washi at Stampaway (or maybe it was a gift, I don't remember! I just put it in the storage box, as I was emptying the bags and thought of you!). TFS & Hugs..enjoy your blog break too!

  48. I love your black and white theme and lay-out. I'm so happy you joined our Challenge last week and would like to invite you to join us again with our Challenge this week at Word Art Wednesday. Just want to share God's Word to you coming from 1 Peter 1:24-25 which says, "For, "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever." And this is the word that was preached to you."

    Have a blessed day!
