If you saw my last post you will know I have been having some blogger problems, I think I may have found the workaround now though. But that led me (along with Crafty Chris and her spring cleaning of her blog yet again!) to change my blog background and layout. It is not quite what I was trying to achieve but blogger won't play nicely (so it may change again).
I've made this card for Something Completely Different challenge, for some reason I thought it was a monthly challenge. I just went to link and found instead of butterflies and twinches, it is now flowers and twinches and not a flower in sight on this card - oh well!
Although you can't really tell, I cut around her head from a second image and mounted it over the top for a 3d effect.

Well I was behind with my entry too so had to double up:D

Love how you used your butterfly twinchie on a card... fab idea (think I might have to pinch

That's a gorgeous lady stamp you used too.. very vintage looking.

Have a great weekend

Lovely card Lin :) I thought it was just my PC playing up I've been able to leave comments on some blogs but not others. And for a while I couldn't read comments on mine. Hope you're having a nice weekend.

Cardarian said...

Lovely card - like the butterflies but I am not quite sure what twinchies are.... Thank you for all your comments on my blog, I wish we could meet in that little street at the Blade rubber stamp company and have a cup of coffee together! Maybe it will happen some time!

Ann said...

Lovely card Linby - I love the lady, she's from a Klimt painting I think - one of my favourite artists.

I love it that you were one of Steph's PTI winners too! And Jeanette, who is my SU online demo! I'm so pleased I joined in that group buy, but I don't think I could afford to do it again ;o)

Sarita said...

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback Linby on my designs, and for your passion flower suggestion too, a fab idea. To be honest, because some people like cute and others don't I would probably still do my girlies anyway, I wouldn't want to be locked into a particular style, and at least that way it broadens my potential customer base as well! Hark at me lol.
Thank you again, I love to know what you think,
Love Sarita xx
