My Cupcake Butterfly Card entry for Color inspiration 50

(sorry for using my camera phone in taking this picture, i dont have a high quality camera... cant afford' :( )

I just made this tonight. technically yesterday because its already the 29th of april right now. I started with the card 9 pm yesterday and finished 1:00 am today. well I had to think very well on how i will compose my card. I know my card is a bit more bubbly than the others but you know what guys.. I really like it. It shows my personality. I just want to share my creative side. I love my work. I really did do my best and just let everything out (emotion, inspiration, fun and fab) And one more thing i literally had to scavenge every box, drawer, cabinets i have just to find the colors to use in this project. I had fun! and discovered lots of stuff i havent seen for a long time.

I mostly got my inspiration from Kristina from MACM videos on youtube, twopeas in a bucket and marion from a pieceofcraftdotcom and many more like stampinup. too bad i dont have a lot of craft paper to use. but you know what? i got through it and look at what i made? oh i just love it. I used a yellow shaded paper for my base cardstock, then used brown ink for distresing, buttons, and craft punches i bought locally here in the Philippines like the hbw daisy craft punch and jef teddy bear punch etc... i placed a brown ribbon at the top diagonaly (i like it betterthat way ^,^) i used a butterfly shaped eraser to stamp the butterfly at the side, used the back of a pencil to make the polka dots. i love polka dots by the way. hehehe and i also used beads to make the body of the butterfly and added a bookplate from hallmark at the bottom saying

"Friendship is a fresh bouquet of happy moments"

I chose this line because I love my friends. They are my inspiration and they are my ohana (we call ourselves ohana :a family....)

So... i love it and i made it special so I hope you like it too... Thanks Kristina!
