butterfly-card

I have a weakness for butterflies I think! I love the Watercolo(u)r Wings set from Stampin’ Up! and the coordinating framelits dies. I used the grid-like background set from You’ve Got This to add some texture to the background. I based the colour scheme on the Blue Morpho butterfly

I created a version of this card for a demonstrator card swap that I’m participating in this week at Stampin’ Up!’s Inspire, Create, Share 2015 convention. I made 45 of these cards and will trade with others so I end up with 45 different cards at the end. It’s a great way to get new ideas and inspiration. I know, you thought that I came up with ALL my ideas by myself. The truth is out – while there are ideas that we come up with on our own, there are also cards that are based on great cards we see others produce. (This defeats argument #45 of “Why I can’t be a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator” – “I can’t come up with all these ideas by myself” LOL).

I’m looking forward to coming home with lots of new ideas and inspiration, and hopefully not a lot of extra pounds either! I get together with a group of friends from across Canada and the US and while we definitely share creative and business ideas, we also like to EAT! I am going to combat this by running a 10km race tomorrow if all goes according to plan. Found out about the Deseret Classic Race yesterday, signed up, have to get my race kit today at some time and will run the race early tomorrow morning (should have plenty of time to get back to the hotel, shower and change and get to the Opening Session of Convention Day 2….)! I hope to have other posts and updates either here, on facebook, Twitter or Instagram. I think it will just depend on what kind of internet connection I have at the time!!
