Best friends

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

I hope you all had a great day today. School starts back tomorrow around here, so we've been busy making sure everything is ready for what is sure to be a hectic morning tomorrow--last minute shopping, packing the backpack, filling out forms, choosing the all-important first day of school probably know the drill. But, now that that's done, I have a few minutes to share a card I was able to squeeze in today.

I used the Week 1 August Viva la Verve challenge sketch for this card, substituting a butterfly for the heart. Rather than use a stamp on the outside of the card, I cut the patterned paper so that the words "best friends" are in a prominent position. The butterfly, cut from a Cheery Lynn Designs die, was cut out in very pale pink paper, but I inked the die with a periwinkle color ink before cutting, to give it more detail.

On the inside, for the sentiment panel, I used two Spellbinders Floral Doily accent corners, inked the edges of the panel with Wild Honey Distress Ink, and finished it off with a few dots of Liquid Pearls.

And, that'll do it for me tonight. Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow...hope you will, too!
