Amazing grace

The Etsy Inspired Challenge is featuring Cathy Walters' art this week, and everything she makes appeals to me.  Here are 2 examples that I used as inspiration for my card:

I love the scalloped edges and of course the beautiful butterfly.


And this is the reverse of another of her pendants, using music paper and a tiny little butterfly to accent the title of one of my very favorite hymns.  Put those 2 together and you get my card:


The stamped butterfly, scalloped circle and the punched butterfly were all made of a piece of polished stone paper I made using purple and blue reinkers.  This card measures 3 1/4 inches in diameter.

LOVE the purple shades you've achieved using the reinkers! So creative, once again! I sure would love to come over and play in your craft space with you! :)
