Another quick...

...one. This weekend will bring about a widerange of emotions and "life events."  We have a wedding, a funeral and a 60th birthday party to attend for a very dear friend.  Today is the wedding...tonight the birthday and tomorrow the wake followed by the funeral on Monday.  Lot's of emotion at all....it is odd how this weekend turned out this way.  But, back to the card.  This  wedding that we are attending will be held in a beautiful park.  It is a picnic wedding.  Very laid back.  The invites were beautiful but very untraditional in that they were, bright, colorful and featured large, bold sunflowers.  So, I went with an untraditional wedding card.....featuring some images that I thought we  would  see around us  at their wedding site.  So here is my card and I hope you likey....and I hope Lisa and Brian do too!


I used colored pencils and stickles on the images and then popped up the butterfly with a second colored image.  The way I like to pop up butterflies is to put glossy accents down the middle of the first butterfly and adhere just the middle of the second butterfly.  Then I cover the second butterfly with glossy accents or stickles and when it dries the butterfly wings naturally lift and curl. This particular butterfly I covered with Stickles Diamond and also put them around the flowers too. Here is a close up of the wings in action.  


Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a good weekend and I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment.  

Be well,
Sheila

Sheila this is jaw dropping beautiful. Oh my goodness this is stunning. This card just pops out from your blog page. Wow! The flowers are so dramatic and that butterfly is truly amazing. I can't get over the vivid appearance of these flowers. They are so bold that I had to take a second look when opening up this page to your blog. I am not joking. That butterfly is outstanding in it's own right! So love the layering and the glitter is such an elegant effect. I sure hope that you added this card to some card challenges because I think it would be a winner. Sorry to hear of all the emotional roller coster feelings that you are having to go through. Life can be so out of sorts at times, but I am more than sure that all events will give you the opportuntiy to appreciate life and that you still have it to live, to enjoy new beginnings and reminince about the day you and your sweetie said 'I Do!" and also to cheerish each birthday like it is the fresh start to another year - a year to reach your dreams and keep beliving that tomorrow is another discovery waiting to happen. Love that your in our Flickr group and so happy that I can call you friend. Big Hugs.
