Missing Spring

With these cooler fall days we are having in the midwest, I’m finding myself spending more time inside.  Today I decided to sift through the pile of my cards that I just can’t bare to part with.  Do any of you have that problem … you know, make a special card and then can’t handle the idea of sending it off in the mail because you will miss it too much?  Maybe I’m just weird, but this seems to happen to me quite often.  Anyway, this was one of those cards I absolutely adored.

I have seen the butterfly pansies used in many others cards, wanted to try my own hand at creating something with them.  I must say, after my very first attempt, I was completely hooked.  I love every idea I come across that is quick, easy and gives GREAT results – this is definitely one of those! 

Many of the products used in this card are now retired, but this can still be recreated using any current items.


Stamps:  Watercolor Trio
Paper:  Orchid Opulence, Old Olive, Whisper White, Cottage Wall DSP
Ink:  Old Olive, Orchid Opulence, Yo Yo Yellow, Elegant Eggplant
Accessories:  Butterfly punch, Scallop Oval punch, Small Oval punch, 5-petal flower punch, ribbon, rhinestone brad, brads, markers, aqua painter

I can see why you want to hang on to this -- it's beautiful. Don't file it away too far; you'll want it in front of you in about 4 months! (advice from a fellow Midwesterner!)

Beautiful card - definitely a "keeper". (Funny story: gave a keeper to my closest friend. I think she could tell my reluctance to part with it because she sent it to me for my birthday! lol)
