Butterfly Easel Card


For this month's challenge at Hero Arts, I've chosen the shaped card combined with sunshine theme.  The background of the easel card is distressed in mustard seed, wild honey, barn door and worn lipstick which is my interpretation of sunshine. A very slim border is left un-distressed (does this word exist?) to create a white border.  For this card, I used Flower Bursts Pattern which is stamped in festive berries.  Finished the front card with some punched flowers in kraft and the matching orange and yellow buttons.

As for the inside of the card, I used the negative of the die which is also distressed with the same colours and added two yellow buttons on the side.  The sentiment is from Verve Stamp.

This card also enters into the following challenges : A Blog Named Hero

Wow! This is so bright & cheerful, and I just love it :) I'm not sure if un-distressed is a word, but it SHOULD be!
