MOJO MONDAY SQUARE
I almost opted out of this one, thinking I wouldn't be able to come up with anything using this sketch. Since I've been on a butterfly "kick" lately, I decided to give it a try. This is what I came up with.
For the bottom, I used a piece of scrap dsp that was lying on my table. The stripes are from the same paper pad, so I used it for the top half of the card. After choosing 3 more coordinating purple patterns, I put them through the CB with a Butterfly Sizzlets die from SU and placed the butterflies along the curve.
For the main butterfly, I attached three together to make it "pop" then tied some silver cord around it. I cut the ends long enough to give it antennae. The crystal gems add some sparkle; the "trail" is hand drawn with a black marker.
After posting this, I rounded the top right corner to accent the curve below. Enjoy!
