Carefree & Epiphany

I'm really excited to be sharing my portion of the
AUTHENTIQUE & EPIPHANY
Blog Hop!


First up is a super, super quick and easy project that literally took a few minutes to put together. 
 Now mind you, the bracelet is one that I all ready had...but it was plain, 
so what better way to dress it up than
with a cute little bauble!

 To create the charm, I used Epiphany Round #14 Circle Punch,
Charm and Bubble Cap and a little "peek" of  an upcoming collection, "LIVELY," 
with the adorable bird motif.  Using a bit of jewelry wire, I looped the charm 
together along with a couple of spare mushroom caps and pearl from another old bracelet. 
 That's it!  Hangs just beautifully and is just the right amount of blingage!
Next is a card of Carefree enjoyment!
I love layering...I don't make a card that's flat, so you will notice that I've layered 
several different patterns from Carefree onto this card. I've used a scalloped punch, 
a circle punch and created a little pleating for the ribbon of paper that sits under the focal point.




After hand-cutting one of the Carefree butterflies, 
I embellished it and the sides with three of the Epiphany Bubble Caps
 that I applied to bits of patterned paper.  I use my sewing machine on almost everything,
 but I also added a hand-stitched X and two dashes in black to help establish
 that visual triangle that I'm so fond of.
