funky flutter 

I like to be different. Use sets in different ways.

I LOVE my butterflies. Garden Whimsy was my #1 pick from the SU! Catalog. I had been on a SU! Cold spell till I got my new goodies, and now its HOT! The HAPPINESS is from So Many Sayings (the Holiday Happiness minus the holiday). I NEEDED something in that corner but couldnt add another flower-that would be too much and off balance.

When I say BALANCE what I mean is you want your design to flow, so the eye should travel in a triangle-

 HERE IS MY TRIANGLE-butterfly, flower to the left, then flower to lower right, back up to the butterfly.

 Its something you dont “notice” but it helps keep projects pleasing to the eye! ALSO remember in design ODD numbers are almost always more pleasing to the eye-keep these in mind when you look at the FLOW of your design.

So while playing around I made it little more funky by using these colors. These colors together are like my favorite fun combo with black Lavender Lace, Pixie Pink, and Tempting Turqoise-LOVE THEM!

I happened upon my American Crafts Green House Foam Shapes (aka the flowers here), while making this and was like BINGO!

I love how this turned out. The butterfly is also stamped on vellum and cut out. I LOVE my vellum cardstock-love it.

No real cool thoughts today-just a simple card, that came together from nothing other than 3 strips of paper.

I originally planned on the card going horizontally-but hey-things change, and sometimes what we set out to do, and what happens is totally different. Sometimes that BAD, and others its better than the original idea!

Have a great day!
