I needed to make a bright card in recognition of the first sunny day we've had in over 30 days where the sun has been out from sunrise to sunset. Here in Maryland, USA we've had so many continuous days of rain that people started saying we are having Seattle weather.
The black background is the Tufted Cushion Card Panel by Frantic Stamper. This makes a great background die. The frames on top of the background panel are cut from the Sue Wilson Californian Collection Decorative Frames (set B). You get 5 frames in this set which layer on top of each other or could be used individually as labels.
I decided to use a butterfly in the center of the card instead of a flower. I cut the Frantic Stamper Solid Butterfly on yellow paper then cut the Monarch Butterfly on black paper. After the two were adhered on top of each other, I used a white gel pen to fill in some of the openings on the butterfly.
All of the products used to make this card are available at Ecstasy Crafts. Be sure to check out their Memorial Day sale that is going on right now.
