Thinking of You

I'm not sure where this week has gone......is it Saturday again already?!! I've somehow managed to fit in making several cards this week, none of which I can post until I know the recipients have received them.  As I haven't got any sympathy cards left in my little box of ready made cards, I've made this card today with a few challenges in mind.  

I used a NBUS Martha Stewart butterfly border punch, which I bought during a recent holiday.  I saw it on special offer and it was too good an offer to miss...... and a perfect souvenir to bring back from my holiday, even though I had to carry it half way round the world!  The embossed background was done with a SB 'Dainty Dots' embossing folder and I added a repeating row of Card Candi.

I am joining in the following challenges:
Butterfly Challenge #75 ~ Butterflies + R is for Repeat and/or the colour Night sky
Darnell's 2nd Annual April Fool's Boo-Boo Hop and NBUS Challenge #11
Simon Says Stamp - Monday Challenge ~ Things with wings

  2. This is a lovely TOY card, Liz! The butterflies look so sweet lined up in a row above the candi. They were worth carrying halfway around the world and I think you've chosen a beautiful e/f to use for your design! Thank you so much for joining in my NBUS Challenge #11! Enjoy the rest of the weekend before it whooshes by, too! Hugs, Darnell
