Homemade embellies

Good morning everyone! i`m up early lol. Not course i want to though,lol. Well...anyway. At Phindy`s Place we are having a new challenge today. We want to challenge you a bit more this time. We want to see some homemade embellishments! Are you up for the challenge?

For my card today i have used digi paper from Bearly Mine Designs and paper from the Girls Paperie. I wanted to make a card with yellow tones course i saw one other gorgeous card with yellow tones yesterday, and i thought it looked soooo beautiful. I just hope mine looks half as good as that one. If you want to make your own opinion Christine is the guilty one making that awesome card. You can find it right here.

The image i have used is called Grandma`s fancy hat. Isn`t she adorable with that waaaayyy to big hat, lol? I`m sorry but i don`t remember what colours i have used course i somehow misplaced my little note. For the dress i at least used Sunflower, Canary and lemon. For the skin i used coral, sunkissed pink, blush and tan. I also used cool grey #1,2,3 and 4. The rest of the colours are in a blur to me, hahaha.

My homemade embellishment is the butterfly. It is quite simple to make. You have to use a flower with 5 petals. You fold over one of the petals and just snip a little hole right below the fold. Just to make room for the antennas. When you have placed the antennas how you want them, you just glue the petal down on the back. When you`re finished you can embellish your butterfly as you like to. Hope this made any sence. I will soon try to make a tutorial on this, so stay tuned.

The lily is a new gorgeous one from Prima and the corner piece is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
