Inside Out

Today's 365 Cards challenge was SO fun! You had to create a card that was mainly embellished on the inside.

I love the idea of a little sneak peek on the outside, then a *wow* surprise on the inside.

This challenge got my brain thinking in a totally different way, and I love how this one turned out!



Stamps: Short & Sweet (SU)
Paper: Kraft, PTI Ocean Tides & Berry Sorbet, PTI dp
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Martha Stewart classic butterfly punch & scallop dot punch, circle punch, rhinestones (The Paper Studio, Best Occasions), glitter pen (Sakura)

what a teaser, Ann!!! I love it! It's so beautiful and *blinging* lolz. Love the way that butterfly is the focal point yet all the other details are eye-catchy as well. How did you get all the rhinestones to line up in that circle perfectly?
