Lil' Inker Designs March Monthly Meetup Challenge ~ Diamond Butterfly!! =)

Pin It

I'm stopping in to share a FUN Card that I have made for the New March Monthly Meetup Challenge over on the Lil' Inker Designs Blog!! I wanted to use the SWEET Little Girl's Best Friend Diamond Die that I had gotten a couple months ago!! As SOON as I saw this Little Sweetie, I saw a BUTTERFLY!! =^) I'm not sure why, but I just HAD to have it so I could make Butterfly's and then I thought, Bling is ALWAYS Nice too!! HAHAHAHA!!  =) So I started by die cutting it from some Gold Foil Cardstock!! Then I backed it with some Black Cardstock!! I used the Stitched Heart Dies to create the Butterflies Body!! I folded it in half and then cut it and then attached the stitched ends to create the Body Shape!! I Die Cut the Fly Trail from the Stitched Butterfly Die Set!! For the Antennas I used some Twine and tied some Gold Seed Beads onto the ends and tied some knots!! I LOVE the way they turned out!! I used the Stitched Mats: Long & Skinny Rectangles Die to create my Little Border Strip!! I used the Stitched Mats: Rectangles and Die Cut the Mat for my Card!! I stamped my Sentiment and the Dots from the Lil' Inker Designs Hello, Awesome Stamp Set!! I created a similar Border Strip for the Inside of my Card and then I added the Awesome Word Die Cut that I stacked 3 Die Cuts High for alittle Dimension and then I covered it with Versa Mark Ink and the same Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder as my Sentiment on the Front of my Card!! I added some Paint Splatters and some Pretty Pink Posh Sequins in both 6mm Gold Flat and 4mm Cupped Black!! 
I LOVE the way that it turned out!! =)
Hope you LOVE it as much as I do!!?? =) I think I'm going to try making some of these in different colors and Paper Piecing them with the different colors of some of the Real Butterflies!! I think that with a Water Colored Background would be AWESOME!!?? =)
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
