let's get ready toooooooooo...

FUSSYCUT!!!!!! that's right, we're back to basics in a big way this week at shopping our stash. no dies or punches are allowed, we'd like to see you hand cut something to use on your card, whether it be a simple label shape, a stamped image, or a bit of vintage illustration, like i've got here:

butterfly cut from a falling-apart old nature book; patterned paper: recollections + vintage sheet music; funky lace from my stash; a bunch of ancient prima "got flowers" which are very nearly old enough to be called "vintage"... at the very least they are "classic" at this point!!!; ink: ranger distress; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

i confess that i had a completely different idea in mind before i saw the new inspiration board at fusion card challenge. but it's MUSICAL BUTTERFLY, people!!!!!!!!! challenges just do not get much more laureny than that, now do they??! :) clearly i've played with the proportions and gone more vintage-vibed than art journally. but still!

there's loads more fussycutting inspiration from my design team darlings over at SOS. stop by and get you some o'that! ♥


  1. Well, it's elegant, Ms. Bergold! That bold butterfly on the classic flowers... and the sheet music... makes for a nice multi-occasion card.
