Dream Valley Challenges #2 - New Beginnings

The challenge at Dream Valley Challenges this fortnight is "New Beginnings".  I chose to make an easel wedding card using my Cricut.  It measures 5.5" square.  The white base cardstock and the shimmery turquoise were both  from my stash.  I used DCWV glitter paper to cut out "Happily Ever After".

Corner punch is an older EK Success.   Butterflies are Martha Stewart punch.  The paper used for the butterflies is by SEI but not sure the name of the line.  It is white with metallic turquoise lines and flowers going thru it.  I punched where I could get some of the turquoise running thru it.  I added lots of rhinestones to the butterflies bodies for some more bling.  Ribbons are miscellaneous scraps.

Inside is more of the same paper.  I used a Martha Stewart edge punch and added a couple more butterflies.  The sentiment is from a stamp set I picked up at Hobby Lobby on clearance.  Its from My Sentiments Exactly.

Start working on your "New Beginnings" creation.  You have 2 weeks to get it linked.  Be sure to check out my fellow DT's creations, lots of inspiration there for everyone!

This cards also fits the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge #144.

I love this, Carrie! Letting the sentiment take centre stage brings a really great effect, and the cut-out lettering looks fab.

There is a little something for you on my blog....the post underneath the DT card. CoB
