International Art and Soul- Monochrome

Come and join us with our challenge of Monochrome over at International Art and Soul - the first challenge of 2020. 

I made a card with this sentiment just a few months ago but I decided to make another as I love this sentiment so much.

My card blank is a 7x7 by Craft UK and the red card is by Sue Wilson, the dark red card is by Hobbycraft. I embossed the red card with a Crafters' Companion embossalicious folder before matting it on to the dark red. I printed the sentiment on the computer and then cut it with a Spellbinder oval die. I used another Spellbinder die for the dark red mount for the sentiment. The butterfly die is by Joanna Sheen and I cut it in the dark red card and then added red mirri card behind each butterfly. The butterflies now look as if they have glistening wings. I set them to the left of the sentiment.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
A Bit More to Craft - Anything Goes
A Perfect Time to Craft - Anything Goes
Crafts Galore - Anything Goes
Love to Craft - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
