It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge this week! And we’re headed to the V&A (Victoria & Albert) Museum. There are so many wonderful things to see there & after much browsing, I chose THIS for my inspiration. 

For my butterflies, after stamping a coloring, they were die cut w/ their matching dies. I used a white paint pen to add the dots on the wings & outlined them w/ a black pen.  I came across just a strip of polished stone background I made a long time ago & thought it looked good w/ the color in the butterflies. I die cut it w/ a flag die, using my Resizing Technique to lengthen the flag. The greeting was added in the corner & some sequins for a little sparkle.

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Welcome to March & to the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club March Christmas Challenge! I’m part of the challenge team again this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

For my card, I used this cute little Reindeer image. After coloring & die cutting w/ the matching die, I put him on a tag die cut. I cut another tag out of white glitter & split it down the middle to have some show on either side. The Merry was die cut out of red glitter paper. I die cut two bows &  split the striped one to edge the white glitter one.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
