Butterfly Grunge

This weeks challenge at The Friday Mashup was to create a card using the sketch that's only 2 layers with a grunge element under the first layer.

I typically like to use both the mashup challenges when I do this blog challenge but unfortunately this time I wasn't able to. Truth is, I actually thought I had till after I completed my card and went back to link it... :( Oh well I suppose. So originally I thought the challenge was to complete a project with only 2 layers and a grunge element under the first layer. I knew I wanted to use my gorgeous grunge set but I couldn't figure out how to make the grunge element be under the first layer and still see it well enough to get the look I wanted. Then I remembered my window sheets and ta da!

  1. Very pretty! I love the bright colors you used for the splotches, and the butterflies offsetting them. The window sheet is a great way to add a layer. Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.

  2. Beautiful! I love the colours you've used and the butterflies that match the splotches. Great card! Thanks for sharing with us at The Friday Mashup this week.

  3. Beautiful card, Stephanie. Tami White posted it on Facebook and gave your blog address. I reposted it on my Facebook page and have had a few compliments on it. From Miami, Florida to Canada you are now known.

    1. Thanks Jackie! I've been away the last week but I just got home and plan on posting regularly again so keep checking back! ;-)
