It’s been a while since I’ve achieved a triple with one card. I have really enjoyed the 2 design teams on which I’ve been included, but because of my schedule as a homeschooling parent, the responsibilities of those DT positions have had a weird way of dictating how my crafting time is spent – when to create a card, the parameters/confines of my projects, which blogs to comment on first, etc. It has been fun and a blessing, it has also been a responsibility that doesn’t always leave me with much flexibility for how my crafting time is spent.
Not sure what I’m wanting to say! Just going through change right now and trying to see where that leaves me. Looking forward to a little more self-directed blog commenting as well as more self-directed projects, too, I guess. 😉 I hope that doesn’t sound ungrateful of me!
I chose the top-right corner diagonal down to bottom-left corner on the CAS-ual Fridays board, using a birthday theme with bling and dies/punches. I used two dies for this – the Piestra Tile die on some Midnight Muse cardstock, and the Faux Crochet Border die on some Pretty in Pink cardstock. The butterfly is also from MFT Stamps, and the sentiment is by Papertrey Ink. I spritzed the butterfly with some Sparkle shimmer spray and added the rhinestone flourish for the butterfly trail as my ‘bling.’
As you can see, I flipped the sketch 180 and took quite a bit of liberty with the rectangle panel and sentiment location.
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉 I am hoping to get caught up on my ‘self-directed’ commenting soon, so hopefully you can expect to see me around more!
