Flowers and a Butterfly

Here is my take on Less Is More's Yellow challenge

I love yellow!   I also love my Martha Stewart border punch.   And I love butterflies and flowers.   So I put them altogether and got this card.

The card blank is graded.  It's almost white on the punched edge whereas the opposite edge is a sunny, warm yellow.

I added a couple of Papermania Colour Capsule flowers and arrange some small silver sequins as the centre.  I love the the light bounces off the sequins.

The butterfly is also a silver sequin.  I adhered it with Pinflair glue gel so it is raised.

This photo highlights the contrast between the punched edge and the plain edge.

You know when you are part way through making one card and suddenly come up with the design for another?   Well, whilst making this I came up with four or five designs I want to make, so look out for some more yellow clean and simple cards!! 

I desperately want to scrapbook too...
and make another card with my crazy neon glitters...
too many ideas and not enough energy to make them all!!

Thanks for stopping by!
