Happy Anniversary


I'm popping in to share a card i made this weekend. I made it for the Altenew December Challenge, which is this photo inspiration:

I went with some of the colors and the butterfly. I started with a brown stripe pattern paper because i couldn't find a pattern similar to the photo inspiration. Looks like i also went a lot more brown then the photo, but that's what i get when i do it by memory!

Next i pulled out Painted Butterflies and inked up one of the butterflies on a light yellow card stock. I used a dark brown for the outline and a light brown for the inside, then i cut it out.

I cut a strip of dark brown card stock and embossed the sentiment in white. I laid this over the stripes panel, then added a brown and gold medallion and the butterfly. I thought it still needed a little bit more gold so i added a strip of gold washi tape under the brown strip before adhering everything to my panel. Last i added the panel to a white card base.
