Unity Be Inspired Challenge - Fall and Butterflies!

Hello! I took a few minutes yesterday to play along with the Unity {Be Inspired} Challenge:

I decided to use both the color and the card sketch challenge, only changing it to vertical instead of horizontal:

I used the same image on the sketch - from the August Kit of the Month. LOVE it - butterflies together with fall leaves? PERFECT! I stamped it on vellum, then colored it in a bit with Tim Holtz distress markers. I also stamped a sentiment from the same kit on vellum.

Pattern papers are from Crate Paper's Party Day 6x6 paper pad, and I added some natural jute twine, and a bit of May Arts ribbon - attaching the entire thing with foam adhesive to a Avery Elle kraft cardstock cardbase.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a wonderful day!!!


  1. Gorgeous card, Heather! Stamping your butterflies on vellum - beautiful! Is there a trick to doing this, because I'd certainly be interesting in trying this out! The pairing of your butterflies with the inks and papers = fabulous!

  2. Your card is lovely! I am having a hard time with the colors in the color challenge-they seem so drab. But your card makes the colors stand out.

  3. This is SO pretty Heather! The color combo is awesome and love the layering and touch of twine and WOW....the butterflies are gorgeous!! Fabulous card design!
    Have a super evening!
