"Butterfly Bouquet" Card

Hi , my sister in-law asked me to make a pretty and simple congratulation card for her sister.

I am feeling kind of depressed because I was nervous making the card, and did not really enjoy the process.
I was feeling intimidated by the fact that my sister-in-law is a true artist; even though I was telling myself that if she asked ME to make a card, then she wants something Gisèle like...but I could not shake off the feeling..So I am kind of bummed out...

 I am linking to Wee Memories who ask us to use the inspiration on Etsy, Pinerest etc...I saw this on Moxie; two of my favorite things; wedding bouquets and butterflies....

I used stickers and inked and glimmer misted on a piece of fabric, frayed the edges..same for the inside, but on paper....somehow it photographed kind of weird, believe me, it looks better in real life...


  1. Oh wow, Gisele, sheer perfection, my friend--WOW!!!

    You had nothing to be afraid of. So beautiful.
    I so relate to your fears. A friend of the family asked me to make a wedding card - the fear kicked then. I had some sound advice that this person knows my style (she always looks at my Blog) so if she wanted modern or cute she wouldn't have asked me.
    We are our own worst enemies and I would say we are the ones who are always striving for perfection. Agree?
    As they say "You nailed this!"""
    Believe in yourself because others believe in you ... that includes me.

  3. This is gorgeous! I love the mix of colours.

  4. Ahh, that is one of my favorite Pinterest pics! Love your sweet interpretation!

    Thanks for playing along with us girls at Wee Memories! :D
