Internet Inspiration, Pinterest and a Card

 I've been hanging out on Pinterest a lot.  I recently joined after I found it an organization mess to keep track of all the beautiful inspiration that I was seeing!  And to be honest, I have seen to only forget and not be able to return to so many places with such gorgeous inspiration.  So, recently in my internet wanderings, I came across this beautiful card from Paisley Scraps.  You can find the original post here.

I immediately and instantly fell in love with this card, it gave me a shabby chic nostalgia.  The focal point of the butterflies was what did it for me.  And based off of that, I came up with this:
I LOVE how it turned out.  I made this particular card for a dear friend of mine who has a birthday in a few days.  This card was made from scraps around my desk if you can believe it or not.  And that pattern paper, I bought ages ago and hate (seriously, everytime I look at it I think, "why did I buy 8 sheets of that?").  Oh and that postage stamp edge, that is left over from a cricut mishap!  And here are some closeups of the yummo details:

Thanks for stopping by!  Please if you feel inspired by my shared inspiration, leave a comment and let her know!
