Cardabilities

Welcome to my very first Cardabilities reveal....
I was so excited to start working on the gorgeous sketches created by Karan...
Here is this month's first sketch..
and my card...


I decided to use my Martha Stewart butterfly punch that I got from Philippa at Lime Tart to create the ribbon effect under the circle in the centre.  I just pinched and folded the strip of punched butterflies and adhered it around the circle as I went.  I love the effect it gave.


I also added lots of dimentsion and texture to the flowers, by folding and adhering with foam tape.
Be sure to pop over the the Cardabilities to see the other gorgeous cards, the dt girls have created.
Thanks for stopping by.
