A Girlfriends Friendly Challenge

Once upon a time, three girlfriends had a friendly little challenge. The challenge was to use these honking huge crystal butterflies I bought from Michael's in a fit of passion- well, every story needs some passion, right? Here's what we came up with, and they are all super!




Cindi used SEI paper Jolie Chocolate, the same I used on the baby card earlier this week. She cleverly cut the paper to highlight the flowers, then sliced the edges and curled them up to make them 3-D. It's layered on pink, then on white card. She wrapped SU's Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon with white narrow satin ribbon, then tied the butterfly to them- stunning!



Alex used all SU things, the flowers up the edge, in brown, are rub-ons. Better hurry if you want them, they may retire out of the catalog soon. She also used the new SU border punch. Her colors are Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, and a teensy bit of Tempting Turquoise. The color choice was ingenious, the turquoise really pops, but in just the right way! Alex is a SU Demo, so email me if you want her Demo address.


I used purchased silver metallic embossed paper. Leaf ribbon (Papertrey on the side bar has it, Fran probably does, too) with bought pearl flowers growing up the center, then a little silver Love charm on the bottom corner. A huge organdy bow finishes it off!


Inside, on the left, I put a little holder for the moolah, since I was seeing this as a wedding card. A SU heart forms the inside sentiment; I will probably color this if I ever use the card. I say that since it would have to be boxed to be mailed, lol, it's about 3 inches think and weighs 2 pounds!
What fun it was to have a friendly challenge!
