Two More

Ok.. on a roll.. cleaned up my desk today..I couldn't see the top of the table for card making stuff! My DD also had a birthday party tomorrow and she was demanding I make a card... so it just had to be done!

My DD picked the Bold Butterfly set for her friend and I added the birthday wishes stamp from the For a Friend Hostess set. I had made this card before using Summer Sun and Rose Red so she wanted me to make it again but this time in pink and purple. I used Pink Passion and Almost Amethyst ink, Almost Amethyst DSP, Pink Passion and Whisper White cardstock. I used the Rock and Roll technique on the solid butterfly shapes.

This second card is litterally made of scraps from my desk. I am loath to throw out anything as I think that I could use it on a card at another time. I had coloured the flowers from Oh So Lovely Hostess set a few weeks ago and they were patiently waiting for me to make something with them. I also had a scrap of Old Olive DSP that was just the right size. I used little strips of Groovy Guava cardstock to edge the flowers and stamped the "Thinking of You" from for a friend in Guava too. It is going to a friend of mine that I haven't heard from in a while. I hope she likes it.

Love, love love the butterflies!
That has to be one of my favourite sets!
When we move into our new house I'll be trying out stamping on walls with it!

I so like these cards. Butterflies are an all time favourite of mine and I am impressed with the pretty card you made from scraps! I'm sure it will be a hit with your friend.
