I've wanted to step out of my comfort zone a bit and try some new things on my cards. I figured this was the perfect opportunity to use some of the beautiful Basic Grey patterned paper she gave me and the MFT rosette die that I HAD to have after I received her gorgeous card. This is what I came up with:
I trimmed down the paper for the rosette so the butterfly would take center stage. I really like how it turned out. I've never used so many layers.
My second card went to my very first PTI friend, Cathy Weber from The Empty Nest Crafter. When I first started with PTI, I joined in my very first exchange on the message board. I was lucky enough for Cathy to send me a fabulous Halloween Card and a few other goodies. She has been so sweet ever since and she made me feel welcome in a place that can be a bit overwhelming at times. I hope she doesn't mind me sharing how special she made me feel when I opened this amazing treasure in the mail, out of the blue. I just keep staring at the card. I love it.
So I knew I need another special thank you card. Here is what I sent to her:
The smallest butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch.
Thanks for looking!
