The FBW card that didn't make it!

This week's FBW challenge was to use the color brown with your butterfly or fairy.  This was the first card I created for it but I didn't really like it.  I staged it anyway for the challenge blog and after making a second card I forgot to delete it from our staging area so it was published on Danni's FBW blog this week along with my other card.
I saw something like this on Pinterest but the one I saw looked much prettier than this one.  I stamped the SU! Swallowtail Butterfly image with Hero Arts Cuppa Joe shadow ink onto Kraft paper.  The top butterfly was created with two Memory Box dies which I then adhered on top of the stamped image.
Thanks for coming by!


  1. Gosh Harriet..I think it is so beautiful with the splash of blue from the butterfly wings...gorgeous.

  2. I can't figure out why you didn't like this card, Harriet. I think it is really pretty. What a great crafting mind you have to layer the smaller butterfly die on top of the stamped image.

  3. This is beautiful Harriet. Love the pale blue and kraft combo.

  4. I am so glad this card ended up in the is a beautiful card with beautiful colors!

  5. Bet you thought I was being an absent blogger this way, just a tad bit late! Love this card and so glad it wasn't deleted...the 2 layer effect works perfectly!
