Blue and white butterfly trail


I'm not sure how I feel about card designs that don't have a centre focal point, but every now and then I seem to end up with one that I just can't NOT make if you know what I mean. Here some faux stitching along the edge is all that holds the two focal points in this card design together.

I placed a lace butterfly on top of a dotted foam butterfly and embellished it with a sticky back jewel and a trail of sequins resembling rain drops which are going to fall on the flowers.

Above the sentiment ribbon - which I colored in from the reverse with a blue Copic marker - is a foam flower with a sequin flower on top, and two fabric flowers with beads in the centre.

At Joan's Gardens Ch. #11-4-13

Love the way the stitched border pulls this one together, and how clever to use the trail of drops to guide the butterfly! I like this card a lot.
