Give Them An Inch...

...and they'll take a yard!
I love that old saying.
It's the theme for my CARDS Challenge at
My Scrapbook Nook 
this week :)
For the month of May, we've enjoyed the beautiful collection of
Echo Park Paper's This & That.  One of the papers is lined in different colors
and sizes of yard sticks, or rulers.  I love it! With that design in mind, I thought this 
would make a great challenge.  I sought out several photos
from Pinterest and Etsy.  I'm not showing all of the inspiration photos here, but you can
check out the entire challenge at our Nook Blog or on the Forum.

My Card:


These butterflies from Maya Road are cute.  Since they're canvas, you could mist them,
paint them, stitch on them, etc.  I decided to leave them plain.  But because they're not
really stiff and I wanted the wings to 'stand-up', I inserted a brad through the center
and then pointed the prongs upward...this made the wings stand up just as I wanted!
I love this card...it has so many great textures, yet it's simple <3
