Butterfly Collage



I offered to bring a birthday card to make at our stamp group at church. We currently
meet monthly and make cards to send to shut in and sick members of our parish.
Is a fun get together and good cause.  Which do you like the one with the added
butterfly or the one without, straight or slanted on the design ?
 
A few fun challenges:
Mrs's A's Butterfly Challenge #115:  Butterfly, Yale Blue, Your choice: Multiple colors 1/30
Crafting by designs: Corners Borders and Frames  1/22
Crafts Galore #59  1/29
Pixies Snippets Playground #343 1/19 (used scraps from my basket for background and layers)

I like the one without the punched butterfly but they are both very pretty cards. I had forgotten you had this one.

I’m not the right person to ask. I’m a slow cardmaker because I can spend hours fiddling and moving bits and pieces around before I can decide. So good idea to make two designs. The black butterfly fills out the space of the corner. But it certainly works without too.

Such a wonderful ministry, Donna! We do the same thing! Your card is lovely with the pastel colors against the black. Gorgeous! Wishing you a great week-end! hugs, de

Beautiful design, Donna - I love these stamps! Would you believe I didn't even notice the difference between the two cards until I read your question?! OMGoodness, Donna, I guess I was scrolling too quickly! I love them both but upon closer scrutiny, I prefer the straight version with the added butterfly. What stands out (to me) on both cards is the tab on the side, great design element! I think it's so thoughtful of you to make these cards for your parish members. You are a sweet person and I know it will mean a lot to each of them to receive your card!

I like the first card without the added butterfly the most but both are stunning and what a lovely idea to get together to make cards to send out . Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel with me this week. Hugs Mrs A.

Ah, don't ask me to choose, Donna, I just can't do it and you can't make me! They are both very beautiful cards - even more so since they are going to such a good cause!! Hugs, Darnell

Two gorgeous cards Donna, I love the colorful stamped background! It's hard to choose but I think I like the one with the added butterfly, it gives just a touch of dimension.

Marina said...

Thy're both beautiful, although I think I slightly prefer the top one.

Wow this is really pretty with the mix of different colors in the image! I actually think it looks great both ways, but I know some days I ask myself the same question as to weather or not I want to angle it...I think it depends upon my mood for the day if that helps!! LOL!! Thanks for sharing! HUGS
