It's only been three days, yet it feels like I haven't crafted in weeks!
I just bought a Martha Stewart butterfly punch, so I knew I wanted to use it on a card. This weeks' Mojo Monday sketch #71 was the perfect opportunity. I combined it with this week's Color Throwdown combination #27, which is Real Red, Basic Black, and Brocade Blue.
The only Brocade Blue I have is the grosgrain ribbon (I have almost no supplies in the Rich Regals family - just Taken with Teal and So Saffron!), so I cheated and used the Bashful Blue side of the Summer Picnic DSP.
The frilly border from Smells Like Cake reminds me of a lace curtain, so I imagined the main image as a window display at a cake store. I briefly thought about covering it with a sheet of transparent paper, but didn't think it would work.
I added lots of Stickles (on the cakes and the frilly border), some Crystal Effects (on the cake toppers), and coloured the top of each cake with my white Glaze pen from Sakura. Both are hard to see in the photo. And there's the butterfly, fluttering by the store window ;)
