I titled this post, When you change your mind... because this is exactly what happened to me this afternoon. I was waiting for a background I made to flatten and started to make another background in the meantime, until I realize it matched much more the card I had in mind. So I will use the other background later and started focusing on this one.
I made the background using a stencil and distress inks. When I saw the final result, I thought those colors really matched the butterflies I made out of my colored glossy paper leftover from my balloons this morning! So I added a thank you sentiment, the three butterflies and 2 ribbons and voilà! This card is much more vibrant then the one I was thinking for those butterflies, I really like the result and I hope you too!
