BIC7- Be Inspired Challenge

Here is this week's Be Inspired Challenge, pretty neat eh?? I thought so, and so I set out to do something step outside my comfort zone a bit and see what I could come up with. The first card I made didn't exactly turn out how I wanted it to, but this second card...really worked out for me. Was starting to worry that my mojo took off on me again :p!

I took two different shots of this card I made, because it was hard to see what I had done with this card. I stamped 4 butterflies, then cut all 4 of them out, and then I used tiny dimensional dots and folded 2 of the butterflies in half. Next, I put the dimensionals onto the middle fold on the 2 butterflies and then attached them to the other 2 butterflies. Pretty neat eh?? I was going to cut a circle out of the front of my card, then have these butterfly's dangle in the middle. For that I would have used all 4 butterflies...and some white thread :)! I think I will make that card this afternoon when I get back from running some errands...will post it tonight when I am done.

Give this challenge a try, it is a fun one and once you are done upload your creation onto Splitcoaststampers gallery and use the title BIC7 . Then head over to Beate's blog and let her knw you posted your challenge there or onto your blog :)!

Have a great day, and if you live where I do please don't blow away :)!

I love how you combined the background with the butterflies.
