Friday Mashup Guest Designer: Butterflies!

Yay! I was chosen as the winner of the zoo-inspired Friday Mashup challenge from a couple weeks ago with my sliding pop-up card of African deer and Asian rabbits - LOL! Such an honor to be guest designer, and I really enjoy it!

Holly has created a new challenge blog, still the Friday Mashup but in a new location. This is unique because there are two themes every week, and you can choose which to do or "mash" them together. This week's challenge is butterflies with dimension.

I've been wanting to make a butterfly lantern for about a year now, so why not combine two projects for a double whammy?

In these shady photos, you can pick up that I used the Very Vintage wheel for the base of the lantern. Please disregard the brown in the background. Hey, it was snowing here last week!

This rare sunny, but windy, day in NY makes for photographic troubles.

I went back and added an indoor shot.

My daughter can't wait to get her hands on this one. But she wants the butterflies IN the cage. The template for the lantern is available on the Paper Crafters Library site, use code PCSHB.

Stamps: Very Vintage wheel; Paper: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Bella Bleu DSP, Haiku DSP; Ink: Crumb Cake; Accessories: Scallop Trim punch, Very Vanilla satin ribbon, Beautiful Butterflies die, Beautiful Wings embosslit, Big Shot, Screen netting.

Thanks for stopping by!
