Today I had the urge to do something a little bit different with my blog pictures and card. With the weather so beautiful I decided to enhance my card with a little of mother nature from my garden.
This particular embossing folder from Marianne Design and the Butterfly Die Cut from Cherry Lynn Designs are something that I picked up at Scrapbook Fest last week. I was most anxious to get started creating another card with them. What could be better than another birthday card?
First... I embossed my Marianne Die Cut all in white. I then took my light lavender paper and embossed it a second time in lavender. Lastly... I cut around the outside of the lavender paper center and popped it up with pop dots to help it stand out from the all white back round. I used the dark purple paper for the boarder and the dark purple also shows off nicely in the cut out area of the embossed center. I then added a little bit of bling with my Iridescent Ranger Stickles to the butterfly as shown below. It sparkles oooh sooo pretty in the sunlight!
Since the top picture is a little small I took another picture in my light box to let you
see it with out any leaves surrounding it.
My very best to you today and hope you'll leave me a message before leaving?
I love hearing from you.....
