Sheeesh, another drab start to the day. Doesn't fill one with any inspiration all this grey and wet and chilly stuff. Whatever happened to our summer?
I did however have a small splash of inspiration over the weekend. My teamie over at Tuesday Taggers has challenged us all to make something inspired by a poem this week. Oh dear! was my first thoughts, as I don't do poems. Last time I read a poem was by force during my 'O' Levels at school!! BUT then I thought, aren't songs a form of poetry?? So I decided to do a card inspired by a song.
I remember an old TV programme called Butterflies which had a theme tune 'Love is like a Butterfly', so I googled it and found out it was a Dolly Parton song! I copied the text from the first verse, as this says it all really.
I have framed it in a die cut framabilities shape cut from pearlescent cream card, which I also used to cut the butterflies using a shapeabilities die. I have teamed the cream up with some blue bazill-like card that I got from my local craft shop. I have used the sketch from Cute Card Thursday for my layout:
Now I have come across a few challenges that I wanted to enter this week, so I decided to combine them all with this one! The colour theme is from the 'blue and cream' challenge at SCSC. There are some die-cuts on this card and these are the challenge at Charisma Cardz this week. I have also used a few punches too, mainly for the leaves, and also the little butterflies, and also the panels behind the frame. Last thing was to add some blue dimension paint here and there. I am also entering at Crafty Creations as their theme is Butterflies too.
Hope you ladies don't find it too difficult finding a poem, just remember - I used a song! (me bad!) Hop on over to Tuesday Taggers then and catch some more wonderful creations from my DT sisters, see you there folks!
