Curtain Call - Flutter

There will be no question as to what inspired me today - there are butterflies blooming at Curtain Call!


I have had so much fun creating cards with my old Martha punch ... but today I have had even more fun - with a Verve die I've had for a few years, but haven't used as much as I should have done!  Pssst... it's on sale!

PTI dots; MFT Watercolor Wash DP; Mama Elephant's Peek-a-frame; Recollections pearls

This little beauty is too fun to stop at one card!  Here's another, in a more graphic setting:


Thanks for fluttering by today!

They are both extra fabulous, but you know those polka dots have stollen my heart yet again!!

Susanne Vargas said...

Gorgeous, both of them!

Both cards are STUNNING but I like the blue one best as it is my favorite color!! However, I like the vellum an the window on the top one. Okay, I guess I like them equally!!

Oh, they are such adorable little darlings!! I don't know which one I like better..but I guess I'll go with the latter, since I love stripes better than polka dots! ;) Wonderful, heart warming creations, Michele!!

PS: Sorry about the 'no-reply blogger' thingy - can't help it - its either use my blog address, which means no one can see my blog if they want to (I got complaints on this earlier) or using my Google ID, since I don't own a Google based blog account... But don't worry, as a blogger/card maker, I know you'll read all the comments and feel that warm glow in the heart!! I definitely do!! :)

Beautiful cards with lovely butterflies! Great take on the challenge!!

Love those butterflies cut with the patterned paper! They look amazing - as do your cards!

Sigh ... sometimes Michele, it's a challenge to come up with suitable superlatives to describe your cards ... suffice to say there was a sharp intake of breath when I saw these two beauties, so gaspingly gorgeous seems a good description! They're stunning and I couldn't choose a favourite between the two! Hugs, Anita :)

Two absolute beauties Michele! Love those soft gray polka dots on the first and touch more graphic feel of the second. Thanks so much for playing with us at Curtain Call!

Patti said...

Love them both. So need to start making cards again and love the ideas this one gives me. Beautiful

Leigh Penner said...

These are both fabulous, Michele! I love your wonderful takes on the inspiration photo!

Jeanne said...

Your cards are absolutely delightful and smile inducing, Michele! I have such a soft spot for butterflies and you've created two equally beautiful cards using them. I adore the colors! The backgrounds are wonderful, too. Thank you so much for sharing your talents! Wonderful work! :) Hugs!

Michele K. Henderson said...

Oh, this butterfly card is so pretty! I absolutely love this idea! Seriously, I am going to make a card inspired by this and then you'll see it somewhere and think it looks familiar. That, is why you are an inspiring card maker to me! It looks beautiful and sweet!
Take care!
Michele

Bobby said...

Two words - Per Fect! The vellum gives an airy feel to the first card. You know just how to layer your die cuts for maximum impact.

Linda Callahan said...

Sigh......total sweetness.....

Jeanne H said...

What wonderful cards, Michele. Thanks so much for sharing them. I will need to CASE!

Barb Ghig said...

Dip Dyed Ombré Cardstock? Swoon! So perfect with these gorgeous butterflies, and of course, I LOVE your polka dot papers on the first one! Two really beautiful cards, Michele!!!

Lovely butterfly cards! I love both backgrounds and the soft colors. What a great take on the photo. Thank you for playing along with us at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.

your first butterfly card is so pretty, it made me smile...the second one made my jaw drop GOR-JEOUS Hon. WOW. Thanks for the eye candy.

Both are gorgeous! Love the wonderful papers, especially the lovely gray with polka dots. And your butterflies look awesome fluttering across the top!
