Hey Friend

Hey Friend ~

After taking the Altenew class, I found myself at a bit of a low point creativity wise.  I think because those classes are so intense for me, I need a bit of a break afterwards. My vampire hours don't help either.

Here is my card:



I started with the prompt from Double D Challenges - Butterflies, and then used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for the basic design, I added a frame element for AAA Cards as well.  My colors were inspired by Muse.

   



Thanks so much for stopping by!

Such a lovely card, Cat! The peachy/orange color looks beautiful with the white butterflies. What kind of paper is that? Thanks for joining the Double D, "Butterflies" Challenge.

I love the fade from light to dark peachy orange. That repeat on the base card is so creative. Even if you are crafting in Vampire hours. This is fabulous. Thanks for joining with us in the Butterfly challenge at Double D.
