Butterfly & Doily

Last night, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and trying a more elegant look for my card. As those of you who regularly visiting my blog knows, my style is usually clean & simple or cutesy. Well, I decided to give elegant a try. And, I am even more pleased that I actually like the result.  

Challenges:
Let's Ink It Up - NO DIGI and Anything Goes
Pile It On - Anything Goes
BasicGrey  - BG ITEM and dots & spots

I made the card based on one of the skecth that I saw from Lucy's blog. I thought it was part of her week long sketch challenge. Wrong!! LOL, but it was one of her sketch, just not part of the sketch week challenge. Oh well...

I think the card still has my clean look somehow. I couldn't bring myself to add more stuff. I love the white space or in this case the blank space. And that doily... now I can see why people love using them in their card. It does add instant elegance to a card. I see myself playing with more doily and do more distressing.

BTW, I noticed that I almost reach the 200 followers point. Am thinking of doing a giveaway to celebrate. Stay tuned!
