Papertake Weekly - Truly Dimensional!


Hi everyone and happy Tuesday! Hope you're having a great start to your week! It's time for a new challenge from Papertake Weekly, and this week the challenge is Truly Dimensional sponsored the fabulous Whiff of Joy!!  Flat is not allowed!! I took it as to use lots of dimensional tape and assure that the card would not fit in a normal envelope. LOL! So that's what I did.


For my card,  I used #321 Hello Little Butterfly from the Butterfly Dreams 2011 collection at Magnolia-licious. She's colored with Copic markers (sorry...didn't keep the numbers this time) and cut out with oval Nesties and layered with petite scalloped oval Nesties. The card base is Bazzill, the matting is PTI, and the DP is old paper I've had in my stash from Making Memories.  All layers are machine stitched and popped up. Don't forget about the amazing Easter/Spring Extravaganza contest going on right now over at Magnolia-licious Highlites! You've got until April 19th to submit your projects, and Diana added a 4th catergory of mixing standard Magnolia images with the minis!! PLUS she added a wonderful GRAND PRIZE!! Check out all the details HERE!


That gorgeous sentiment is from the Whimsy set of Spring Letter Seals colored with Copic markers to match. And again, it's popped up for dimension. The bow is May Arts silk ribbon topped off with a cherry blossom from Wild Orchid Crafts. The punched lace down the right side is from a Magnolia DooHickey Die.



That gorgeous butterfly was made using Marianne Design Creatables Butterfly Style 2, and I used some Kaiser half backed pearls down the center. I think that just about covers everything!


Please pop over to Papertake Weekly to see all the amazing creations the Design Team has for your pleasure today! Then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

I am entering this card into the Wild Orchid Crafts challenge of Wings.
