Card Patterns 22
I have been having some trouble thinking beyond really simple cards these days so I decided to participate in the latest Card Patterns Sketch Challenge. I wanted to use a big butterfly like the one in the sketch but I didn't have one. However, the day after I made this card, I got my SU order with my butterfly die in it! Oh well... I like the two smaller butterflies just fine.
I thought this would make a cute wedding or anniversary card! I embossed the white strip with small polka dots but you can't see it in the picture. I also used some liquid pearls at the bottom.
I had been wanting to try Dawn McVeys color suggestion... Berry Sorbet and Pure Poppy. I can check that one off my list! :-)
Hope you are having a great Tuesday!
