All Dressed Up - Challenge #33 - Anything Goes

Hello, my friends!

Today is the start of a new challenge at All Dressed Up!
The challenges are always "Anything Goes" but you must use an All Dressed Up image.

This will be my last post as a member of the All Dressed Up DT.
I have made the difficult decision to step down from the team.
You'll still be seeing me use Wendy's sweet images because I love them!

So, on to today's project...

I used the lovely image called "Hippie Chick" which you can find HERE.

To create the fun scalloped card base, I began by folding my 8 1/2 X 11 cardstock in half. 
I then placed the Grand Nestabilitie die just off the folded edge of the paper, and ran it through my Big Shot.
It's such an easy way to make a great shaped card.
Then I just layered up some other dies and added the fussy cut image. 
I used the sentiment "Amazing" because it truly is amazing to see a whole kaleidoscope  of butterflies.
One actually visited me in my yard one day.
FYI - I actually googled what a group of butterflies is called. 
There are several names, including: kaleidoscope, swarm, rabble or flutter. 
I went with my favorite but "flutter" was next! :o)

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Image: All Dressed Up - Hippie Chick,
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Sentiment: Simon Says Stamp - Amazing;
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black;
Dies: Nestabilities - Grand Scalloped Rectangles,
A2 Floral ribbon Threader;
Unknown: Rhinestones and Glitter Glue.

Too bad about leaving ADU Nancy because I know how much it meant to you. It's true what they say though, when one door closes, another opens.
This is a great card. I love the image of course and I also learned something... I didn't know there was even a term for a group of butterflies and I really like all those little beauties on here. I also like the dies you used and the bold, dark colours look great together.

Kat W said...

Oh no, rabble or swarm sounds far too angry for pretty butterflies, I like least I did until I just had to spell it!
And I LOVE the kaleidoscope of butterflies and the fabulous bright shades on your gorgeous card :-)

I'm sorry to hear you are leaving All Dressed Up but I'm sure you will have lots of exciting things to come in future...and I'll be here to check 'em out!

Big hugs, Kat xx
