Ur so sweet card for YouTube challenge

So today’s post is going to be about a card that I had made for a challenge on YouTube.  The challenge is currently closed, I had really wanted to get this post up a while ago, but it had taken me a little while longer to get the card completed than expected. So for the challenge it was hosted by Vanessa who is 77Butterfly Luv on YouTube.  She had currently reached 500 subscribers and had a giveaway, in order to be enter into the giveaway you had to participate in her challenge.  The rules of the challenge were quite easy, meaning that there were not so many. You either had to do a layout or a card, use Chevron’s, three butterflies, stamps preferably alphabets, and thickers. So for me this was a bit of a challenge because I don’t own anything Chevron or thickers.  But I am very happy that I decided to participate in the challenge, I had a lot of fun making my card and I am very happy with the way my card turned out. Now if you would like you to watch the video below it is just an entry video and it doesn’t go into a lot of detail about the card.  If you would like more information about the card please continue reading this post.
For the card I started out with a black card-based, then I added some purple, Chevron, light blue card stock which are all from the Chevron paper pack from Michael’s and it’s the recollection brand. The butterflies were punched out using a Martha Stewart butterfly punch, and then I added some diamond stickles to them to make them pop. The stamped image is from The Greeting Farm, stamp set, sweet and toxic. I colored in the girl with my Prisma color pencils, then created a mask and added the blue color behind her. The ribbon is from American crafts and it is just a jute ribbon. The thickers are from American crafts in the fantastic collection. And I just added some white stitch lines using a gel pen. The inside of the card is pretty much set up the same way as the front again with the purple, Chevron, blue card stock. The three butterflies, the skull stamp is from the same stamp set is on the front.  The sweet is from a recollection alphabet stamp set. I had also mentioned that in my video I like to have my envelopes sort of match my card says you can see in the pictures below I had incorporated some butterflies, and on the back flap I had white embossed the skull  from the same set again.

 So thank you so much for checking out my channel I hope you really enjoyed this post. Until next time have a great day.                     Crystal
