Butterfly Beauty Card MMSC5 and Flutterby Wednesday Challenge




I am always wanting to try new things to keep my creating fresh, interesting and fun. For MMSC5, I decided to do a paper pieced card. There is no stamping on this card at all. I don't think I have ever done a card that had absolutely no stamping on it at all, so this is a first for me. I do have to say that even though it was different for me, it was quite fun. I added my own touch to it, of course. I gave the butterflies wire antennas with pink gems down their bodies, added a bit of flourish and the hardware word "beauty" and there you have it.... a very pretty card with no hand stamping.


The one thing that the Midnight Madness encourages is creativity and having an open mind about individual artistic talents. Thinking out of the box is something that we love to see! I hope that all of you that are participating in the challenges are finding it fun to see the different creations and coming up with some of your own as well.


This week we are proud to say the“MIDNIGHT MADNESS MASTERPIECE” Gold Star Award goes to.....

I am also entering this card in the Flutterby Wednesday challenge: http://dannisdreamscrafts.blogspot.com/ This is my first time entering a challenge outside of the MMSC challenges, so I may just get hooked on this.
Oh, and don't forget to tell me what you think of my creation for this week's challenge. Thanks for dropping by and taking a minute! I hope to get around to see all of your creations this week too. I can't wait.
