Flowers, Feather & Butterfly

Happy Friday! Let's start with some Grey's Anatomy love, shall we?? This show is pretty much the only show that I'd make sure I don't miss. I love this show a lot!

And, I know many of you DVR-ing the show and might not seen last night episode, yet. So, without revealing much, I just want to say that at the end of the show, the one thing that trigger me to cry was this simple written word "Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital". Sigh... I still miss Lexy & Mark. And, I love how Yang and Owen are back  together.

Okay, let's move on from my Grey's obsession. After the show, I was able to create just for fun for Moxie Fab Elegant Emerald challenge and A Blog Named Hero free style challenge. The inspiration picture from Moxie Fab is simply gorgeous and I really want to play along.

Love the color, the pattern on the dress, the feathers, the butterfly and the pop of red. As soon as I saw this pic, I have this idea swirling in my head and this is what I came up with:

Recently, I received a generous presents of Hero Arts goodies (thank you, Jennifer!) and one of them is this gorgeous flower background called "Flower Medley Background" that I think is simply stunning.  The sentiment is also from Hero Arts.

For this card, I stamped it with Versamark ink to duplicate the tone on tone pattern like the dress. Cut out a couple feathers that I colored with Luminarte twinkling H2O paint (so these feathers actually has gorgeous nice shimmer), add butterfly, and pop in some red pearls (well, it's actually white pearls colored with Copic marker). I decided to go with black sentiment to pull in the black color from  the wing of the butterfly as shown on the inspiration pic.

I am very happy with the way this card turned out. This card get my mojo going. I think I will have lots of fun creating this weekend. :) What about you? Any crafting plan this weekend?
