IC Challenge and a Quick Tip!!
It has been awhile since I've had a chance to blog!! I went on vacation and then came back with a terrible multi-virus thing that required masses doses of antibiotics and steroids to kill. But, the good news is, it worked! Just in time for the weekend - LOL!!
My card is for the Inspiration Challenge this week that I get to host! I chose the website "Fossil" because my sister just got a job there (after 2 YEARS of job hunting) and it looks like a fabulous place!! I'm so excited for her and excited that it led me to this fun inspiration site!! (Did you know Fossil even sells antique retro items??)
I chose this fun "Sasha Butterfly Clutch" as my inspiration.
I also have this quick tip for ya!!
For the butterfly antennae, I used these Blue Moon metal eye pins that are traditionally used for bead work. They are so cool, they already have a tiny loop ("eye") at the ends so all I had to do was twist and adhere to the back of the butterflies! All three packs of them came on one card, and they are 3 different lengths.
I tried to get a close up of the curly antennae but it dosn't show up so well. You might click on the photo for a close-up look.
I haven't tried yet, but I think next I'll try using them as stick pins for embellishments.
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
