Same difference

Wasn't 100% satisfied with the first card that I made with the paint sample and I knew that I would have to give it another go before moving on. ( Am I sad or what?) I am much happier with these. The only difference between the two cards is the placement of the sentiment. How odd that such a little adjustment can make a difference...... (See my last post - it's all in the positioning!) I have entered the first card in this week's CAS-tastic Challenge (CWC014) as it requires us to "BLING it Up"". Not a lot of bling here but enough, I think.


I have also reversed the order in which the coloured butterflies are placed. This time I have chosen to put the lightest tone at the top. As I have added dark ribbon to the bottom of the topper, it seemed right to have the darkest shade next to it.

It still tickles me that the butterflies were punched from a paint sample card - the same paint sample card for all three !!! I am going to have to resist the urge to go to B& Q pretending that I am redecorating the whole house and in urgent need of a large amount of these samples.

I can see exactly what you mean and it's slightly better but I like the other as well. Looking at the butterflies, it's almost as if they get smaller as they move up the card. It must be an optical illusion.

What a beautiful card and fantastic tip on the paint sample chips. Love the monochromatic look, your bling is perfect and I enjoy the lighter butterflies on top.
