Butterfly Celebrate...Inkspirational Challenge #113~Photo Inspiration, Happy Little Stamper July Anything Goes with Dies Challenge, Get Creative Challenges #43~Celebrations

Hello!

How quickly these summer weeks are flying....and it's already time for our new Inkspirational Challenge #113, where our ever-so-talented guest designer, Jane, along with my ultra creative DT:


invite you to feast your eyes on this chic and stylish cake for inspiration:  


Elegant...so elegant!

My solitary city-scape silhouette wasn't calling my name for this challenge, so I listened to what was: the 'creamy' background, the splatters and...no surprise...a butterfly...again!!  Simple...plenty of 'open' space...and, hopefully, a wee bit of sophistication...

Please head over to the Inkspirations site for more inspiration from our Jane and the team (and leave them some love; I know they'll be delighted); you'll be amazed! Guaranteed!  

Looking forward to seeing your creativity in the gallery!

  11. That is such a graceful butterfly die, Carol, and I love what appears to be 'fairy dust' (I hate to call it pollen) emanating from it's wings.

  12. Wonderful card with the clean look and an elegant black and white color profile! I love the splatter addition!

    Also, do let me know if you find any good mystery books. I host a book club and though mystery is not my favorite genre, the other ladies love it! We did read a fun mystery novel a few months ago, Still Life by Louise Penny. It is the first in a series. Also, I just finished a novel that had a good bit of intrigue, The Silent Sister. Currently I found this author, Charles Belfoure, that I like and have read several of his books. I really enjoy his style.
