…But I Drifted

Today’s card features the beautiful Snow White from the Steampunk Fairy Tales and Myths collection at Simply B Stamps.

To make up my card I followed the sketch over at Mojo Monday, I just changed it up a bit by making this into an easel card.  I used a burlap flower to replace the circle element in the sketch and fussy cut around the image before adhering it to the burlap flower.

The current theme at Through the Purple Haze’s challenge is butterflies and flowers but I didn’t want this card to be too girly as it’s going to a not very girly friend of mine.  So I’ve gone for more of my favourite metal embellies and darker colours in my ribbon choices.  Butterflies are also the current theme at Stampin’ for the Weekend so I’m also going to enter it into their challenge.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the title of my post refers to Mae West’s comment how she used to be Snow White but she drifted.

Thanks for stopping by!
