What ever will be... Will be.

Hi Crafters,

It's amazing sometimes you start a project with an idea in your head and you even know how it is going to look when finished. But what you end up with is nothing like you imagined it to be.

This is one of those times. I had just been having a look at a challenge blog and the challenge was a sketch.
I liked the sketch so thought I'd have a go, and an idea popped into my head. I thought to my self "Right here we go, I'm going to enjoy this, I know what I want to do" .
And so I made my card but it bares no resemblance to the card I had in my head what so ever. So I think my hands must have a mind of their own.  LOL
I hadn't even noticed it wasn't going the way I wanted it.

And here are the cards I had made.
I started by stamping the Art nouveau large corner stamp from Clarity Stamps in two corners. 
Next I made the flower which is just circles scrunched up and then put together with a brad.(See my easy paper flower tutorial HERE
Next I made the stem which is in sections and the leaves are the wings of a butterfly. 
I finished the card of with some gems and a couple of butterfly's punched out of the same paper the flowers are made from. 
I enjoyed making these and I like how they turned out, even though they aren't what I had in mind.

Maybe the next card I make will be the one I was going to make this time. 
Well that's all for now. Thank you for visiting , see you again soon.

Love these cards. Looks like a lot of work has gone into them. Very delicate.
