Red Carpet Studio #19 - The Butterfly Effect Challenge

 This week we're having a card challenge and it's the premiere of our card guest designer this month, Kim!

This week's challenge is inspired by the 2000 movie, "The Butterfly Effect" starring Ashton Kutcher.

Even though spring is still weeks away, we thought we'd help brighten those winter blues with a fun, spring-like butterfly challenge. This week's card challenge is to include a butterfly on your card.

Challenge Guidelines:

  • Project must be posted during the week of the challenge, no backlinking
  • Must be a card, any size or shape is okay
  • Link up by Saturday January 19th at 11:00 PM US CST
  • Number of challenge entries is unlimited, each project must have its own post on your blog
  • Card must follow the challenge theme

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Floppy Latte's Digital Designs! One lucky, randomly chosen winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to their shop.

Here's my card I created for this challenge:

The solid paper is from Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection Pad. The pattern paper in the center is from MME Lost & Found. I did use the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder in my Cuttlebug. I also have a EK Sucess Butterfly punch. It is a layering punch which gives the butterflies dimension. I placed the butterflies on the ovals which I made from my Spellbinders Nestabilities Petite Ovals Small & Floral Ovals. The sentiment is from Cardz TV It's All About You stamp set. I then finished the card with some bling and ribbon!!

On a personal note I wanted to let you know that we have been house hunting for the past month and it really has taken away from my crafting. Finally after all the searching, we have found a house!! Yeah!! Our offer has been accepted and we just had a home inspection done yesterday. This week we will get the house appraised. If all goes well, we should be moving the first or second week of February. I really have not even begun to pack, so these next couple of weeks I will be busy with the packing. April and I went yesterday to pick up more boxes, so I have no more excuses and have to get packing. I'm hoping my blog will be back to normal by the end of February. I have been thinking of a couple of new things that I'll be doing on my blog, so please be patient and I promise to be back on a regular basis soon!!

Take care and talk to you soon.
