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

Lovely card, so clean and different! The butterflies border look amazing with these candi dots and the white embossed panel! You have done so well to buy it!!

Darnell said...

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
