Finding Inspiration

I saw an ad in a magazine last month, I loved the way they had patterned papers scattered for display.  This idea has been rolling around in my head ever since and I was wondering if I could actually bring it to life.  Stampin' Up! has so many cute designer papers, all of which I thought would be perfect for this project!  Using a full 12" length strip of dsp allowed me to complete two cards.

I do have to thank a wonderfully kind and talented friend (thanks Susan!!!) for teaching me how to make the beautiful butterflies ... and if you are reading, you're right ... I WAS making those antennae much harder than they were!

Elegant and gorgeous. Now how did you make those antennae? I am visiting because of your post on LNS. If this is what you do you had better start posting more. You are doing a great job.
