Look Ma, No Adhesives!


Hope You Can Cling To card drive.  It's a month of 
challenges and card making to benefit those affected by breast cancer!  
Sabrina has challenged us to make a card using 
no adhesives and it has to be more than one layer, though the whole panel can 
be attached to a card base.  It's harder than I thought - I kept reaching for 
embellishments like sequins and pearls! I eventually hit on the idea of
stitching on buttons.  The butterflies are watercoloured with Distress Inks 
including Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord and Worn Lipstick and then 
stitched onto the panel.  The card base was watercolored
and then stenciled with gray ink.  
It's a beautiful sunny autumn day here in Belfast - whatever the weather
is like where you are, I hope you're having a good weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

Very pretty card! Of course, my first thought was "No adhesives!" How do you put a card together with no adhesives. It would have stumped me (told you I can't think outside the box. But you sure aced this challenge! Way to go.

Beautiful card Bridget. Love the pretty butterflies and the background... the stitching is a fantastic idea instead of glue!
