Muse - Warm Wishes

Hello Paper Crafters!
Hope you're having an enjoyable day.  At the Muse Card Challenge #223 Anita provided a fantastic inspiration for our creativity with the most intricate butterfly. My card follows the general theme ... I used a black butterfly, bold/rich colors, abstract background inking.  I used colors in purple, red, yellow; butterfly that was stamped in black/heat embossed with clear EP. For some additional interest, a black and white striped strip with a very thin strip of silver glitter paper was added to one side of the panel.  A few clear sequins add some additional sparkle.
Thank you for visiting and commenting ... always appreciate your feedback.

  1. I love your take on Anita's card, Marilyn. I'd have never ever thought to use black for a butterfly, and it is gorgeous sitting in front of your bright colors. The sequins add just the right amount of sparkle, and I especially love the strip of black and white stripes along the left side. Beautiful card! Bev
