Butterfly Flashback



It's Flashback Friday time again!  For this challenge we are to share our first card with a butterfly.  Holy cow!  Look at all that patterned paper!!  LOL!  This card was posted here in January 2011.  I was still very much finding my feet in terms of figuring out my style and funnily enough I used a sketch challenge for this card.  Guess I developed my aversion to them fairly early on...  It's a tad lost in all those patterns but the butterfly is there on the top right corner of the sentiment panel.  If you haven't played along with Flashback Friday before then you must go check it out.  Not only is it fun to look back at how our styles have changed but there are also always fabulous prizes.  Here's the current prize from Simply Cute Creations:
How fabulous would that look in the Craft Cave!?!  Very cool.  If you want to be in with a chance to win then dig into your archives and head on over to Flashback Friday!  Good luck!  :)

My eyes are streaming because I'm laughing so much at your post Jen! As soon as I saw the thumbnail I knew this was not your usual style and then I saw it was for flashback :0)
Thanks for making me laugh so much this evening and I think I can see why you have such a large stash of patterned paper now....you used to love using it :0)
Well worth digging the card out to try and win the wall hanging though :0)

Thanks for the reminder... I'm sure I have an older butterfly card to resurrect, too! This would be in your shabby-chic era? I do like it!

Wow, that's...busy ;) Gotta say I'm with you on the sketch cards...sometimes they just force themselves. I do love the papers, though! And sparkly is always good.
