C for Corners

I made this card for a friend who has injured her back and will enter it into the current Butterfly Challenge, which is 'C for Corners'. I chose to put my sentiment in the corner of the card and to add gems in the opposite corner.  I'm also paying a visit to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 7" x 7" kraft 
Card: Black matt
Paper: Creative Cardmaking (magazine freebie)
Other: Butterfly charm (from Mrs A)
Snippets: Black ribbon, black gems

I trimmed a square of floral paper and layered it onto black card.  I attached a snippet of black ribbon around the right side before attaching the square to the card blank.  The sentiment was trimmed, layered onto black card and fussy cut before being attached to the card with foam tape.  I then attached the butterfly with silicone glue and added gems to the lower corner.

I love that design paper, so colourful and I love the gems in the one corner and the sentiment in the other with the silver butterfly. Stunning.
Hope your friend feels better soon. Thank you for fluttering by my #27 challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

Such a pretty card! You were right to let that gorgeous paper steal the show, and not cover it up too much. ;)

Some fantastic pattern paper, and love the way you've used that bold floral pattern as you did. I never quite know how to best use the pattern motifs on some of this pretty paper. Also liked the design with your sentiment as you've done it too. Great card for your friend and entering into Mrs. A's Butterfly challenge. Sure hope your friend's injury will heal quickly and with no problems. Happy Easter. TFS
