Butterflies and Postage Stamps

Hello Crafty Friends,

I know I have been missing for the better part of two weeks, but I have been working feverishly on getting my crafty crap organized. So I thought I would come out of the woodwork and dust myself off to let you know PINspirational is starting a new challenge!! However, before I get to challenge I would like to share my card for today, enjoy!



This is as shabby chic as I get. I give crafters a ton of credit who can do it and do it well.
I wanted to add texture using images, shapes, and pop dots 😊.
As you see from the inspiration pin it is monochromatic.
This made it challenging for me; for the urge to add color was irrestible. 
__________________________

There is no sponsor for this challenge. 
Deanne has decided to take a break from sponsoring.
So, this is just for fun and I'll choose Top 6, instead of Top 3!
__________________________

You can see some color was added. Dark blue and yellow are the only colors added.
The rest were done using textures and dimension.
A detail shot of all the elements that went onto the card.
I tried to be consistent by only working with one paper pack. This hopefully eliminates
any clashing that might occur.
Challenges Entered:
Addicted to Stamps Challenge: Challenge #148- Brads and/or Buttons



Are any of you crafters running out of room for all you crafty crap?
Well, I am!! I am trying to find new and inventive ways to store all my treasures and still keep them accessible AND visible... Any tips would be appreciated or I may drown in my own craftiness!! 


Isn't this hilarious!!
To quote Homer Simpson:
'It's funny because it's true.'

Well, that should do it for me. I hope you enjoyed your stay but more importantly, I hope you join our challenge at PINspirational. Until then take care and happy stamping!

All the best,
Shawna
