Three "B's"

This is my second card for Double D’s Challenge named "B&W Only" and creating it made me realize how much I like adding color to images. It is really difficult for me to not add a pop of red or a wash of teal to the butterfly on this card… but I didn't! Instead, I printed the free digi (that I found HERE) onto a sheet of music from my scrapbook stash. I selected the background papers to fit within the current Butterfly Challenge that focuses on the Letter E. My card includes an Easel Card, embossing and also, of course, a butterfly.  The sentiment is a freebie from Desert Diva. You can find it HERE. Am entering this into a few additional challenges including Bugaboo Stamps current BINGO challenge, where I focused on the top row [Hope die from CASual Fridays, sentiment "hope", and texture- embossed swirls]. ]

I'm busy working on card assortments to give as graduation gifts so am making cards for all seasons. Am thinking that the high school grad that receives this card will enjoy sending it to a friend or family member next Halloween. I found the instructions HERE.  However, I didn't have the flip fold die, so had to create that on my own, and used circle dies for the eye and cutout behind the "BOO." Speaking of the "BOO" I cut the three letters from a sheet of scrapbook paper for the football team at a nearby high school, the Baldwin-Woodville Blackhawks, and wrote the rest of the sentiment by hand.

A few days ago I posted a bunny shape card using a template from a fun kids craft site named Easey Peasey and Fun. The card was so easy to make that I decided to make the bear shaped one. I wanted his little nose to be shiny black and couldn't find any paper in my stash that would work. Then I noticed a package in my trash bin that a new embossing folder came in… and it was just what I needed. The inside sentiment is from Eureka Stamps. You can find it HERE.
