365 Cards - Day 149

Aloha and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday with 365 Cards! This week our focus is on the backgrounds of our cards and today's challenge is to split your background in to 4th's and make 2/4's patterned paper (doesn't have to be the same patterned paper) and 2/4's solid paper (again doesn't have to be the same). Well, I kept mine simple and used the same patterned paper and solid paper in my background. I found this SEI butterfly paper in my stash and thought it went perfectly with this image from Floppy Latte Designs. Kinda hard to tell in the picture (sorry I couldn't get the Early Espresso paper to edit better in PSE) but I also dry embossed all of the background papers (can't remember the name of the Cuttlebug embossing folder, sorry again!). I also changed the color of the image from black to brown and used just a little Copics on the wings.

Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. 2 Sisters Challenge Blog - anything goes
2. allsorts challenge blog - free and easy
3. CardPatterns - sketch
4. Sassy Studio Designs - CAS
5. Crafty Cardmakers - butterflies
6. Digi Doodle Shop's Best - CAS
7. digital tuesday challenge - gardens with things with wings
8. Do you Stack up - Wings
9. Paper Cutz Challenge - anything goes
10. The Crafty Pad - embossing

Thanks again for stopping by and see you on Saturday when I'll have a sample for the D2D Designers' challenge!



WOW, this is differrent from your usual Wed. morning card! The image and background compliment each other so well. Love the highlights in her wings. Hope you feel better today - maybe a sick day is in order?!?
