I didn't plan to one-up yesterday's four challenge card, it just happened that I came across five challenges today that fit together beautifully on one card. Today's 365 Cards wanted to see metal. The ABC challenge was looking for layers. Crafty Creations called for black and white with a splash of color. Flutter By Wednesdays, in addition to angels, fairies or butterflies, wanted us to use something new. The Diva Coffee Break Design Team provided the overall sketch.
I started with a Halcraft card base on which I layered Stampin' Up Basic Black and Shimmery White. The white layer was textured with the Spellbinder Impressabilities Butterfly plate. I used a new piece of paper, gcd Studios Tinted Flowers designer paper. The metal flower brads are from Multicrafts. The sentiment is Stampin' Up Short & Sweet.
I really love this card. Considering how many challenges have been used on this one card, it should be busy, but it isn't. I did add a sentiment to the sketch because I felt it was needed. I also used dimensionals on everything and it certainly provided great depth. Maybe that's why it appeals to me so much. I figure this card will easily pass for a Valentine even with nary a heart in sight.
I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
