One-Layer Wednesday - Swirl Part Two

OK, Annie - this one's for you:) This is the card that I wasn't going to post. I "fixed" it though, so it's much more acceptable.


I made this card for last week's One-Layer Wednesday challenge, which was to use swirls, and for the CAS-ual Friday challenge which was to have the sentiment be the focal point of the card. I stamped the frame, which is from Hero Arts, and added the sentiment, which is a dollar stamp from Michael's. Then I added the butterflies, which are from the same Hero Arts set as the frame. Then I masked off the frame and added a couple of swirls. I did a little coloring on the butterflies and frame and added some Stickles. I thought that would be good enough, but it was too unbalanced and I didn't like it. I came back to it later and added swirls over the entire background and I liked it a whole lot better!


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Thanks Lynette!! I can usually pick your cards out of a bunch, they always stand out. I wouldn't have picked this one, but its VERY acceptable, better than most of my one layer cards, which I seldom have success with. Love the sentiment! thanks for sharing!
