CASE Study #70 - Fuchsia Butterfly Flourish


I'm trying to get some crafty time in before the big day this week - I know there will be lots of last minute running around with the kids both out of school.  Today my mom and sister came over and we all decorated gingerbread houses.  We all had a great time decorating and sampling the goodies to go on the houses.  We had so much fun we decided to make it an annual tradition!!  I bought all different size house kits so our village doesn't look like a cookie cutter sub division!  Note to self - next year buy ALL pre-assembled houses! 
Today I'm playing along with the Case Study challenge this week.  Actually this one is running two weeks - so you have extra time to play along.  Our muse/designer of the month is Amy Sheffer!  Her gorgeous card is to the left.   If you'd like to play along you can get all the information here: http://casestudychallenge.blogspot.com/2011/12/case-study-challenge-70.htm 
I generally like a lot of color so I added some bright fuchsia pink to this one.  I double cut the butterfly and just couldn't resist adding some antenna.  I picked up the bling in Amy's example and used it to dress up my butterfly.  I stamped all my images with Archival Ink to get a clean dark imprint.  I hope you like it and thank you for taking a peek!
