The Smartest Audience in the World....

Which, of course, is you! However, no one noticed that I was in such a hurry on my last card that the inside had a butterfly on the front, and a dragonfly on the inside flap!!! Lol....DD noticed it right off! I feel pretty silly! Oh, well.... gotta laugh - it is really funny!

Today's card is for a challenge over at Heart Hugs Designs. We were to go to Bacon Square Farm's site on Etsy, and pick out something to design a card after. I picked this:


I cut 9 strips of CS about 1/8" wide, distressed the edges, hoping they'd look like the pipes in the above photo. I think they look more like siding : -) Anyway, it was something I liked, and here is what I made...

Supplies: DCWV CS, Verve's Abundant Blessings Stamps, Colorbox Chalk Ink; Charcoal, Flower Soft; Spring, Marvy Scalloped Circle Punch. I colored the edges of the punched circle with a black Tombow marker, and adhered it over the cut out center with a pop up dot.
Hopefully, you have been blessed with a beautiful and relaxing weekend. Ours has been nice. DD has had to work all weekend, as did DH, but he and I did manage to go to the movies last night. We saw Angels and Demons. Funny.... we thought that the Angels and Demons book was better than the DaVinci Code book, but the DaVinci Code movie is better than the Angels and Demons movie!
Cardinal's lost....bah...
Peace out one and all!

Nice card tonight Patti. I had notice the dragonfly/butterfly thing but figured you meant to do it that way. It's not like they're segregated out in nature!
Happy Sunday!

Oh yeah, it's superb! Really great card.
I must say i didn't notice the butterfly/dragonfly, thought it was meant to be like this :)
Hope you have a lovely week.

Okay, so I had to go back and look. It's not a dragonfly, it's a skinny butterfly! LOL

Your card for the inspiration piece turned out nicely. I've got to try that flower soft...

Hugs,
