I am having Spring fever even though it is 70 one day and 50 the next.  My flowers are peeking through, well more than peeking, I actually have some buds on my daffodils.  To celebrate Spring
I would like to share some cards that my friend Linda and I made to send out as invitations for her workshop. I have left a greeting off of these ( yes, I had to have some for myself as well so I made 10 more when I got home).  I will use them as all occasion cards, adding a greeting for the occasion. The idea for this card came from one I saw on a blog that was done in black and white, very formal and I just loved it.  I seem to have hidden the copy from myself so if you recognize this card please e-mail me.  I would love to give credit to the original  creator.  I made mine using Pretty in Pink 100459, So Saffron 105118, Certainly Celery 105125 and Bashful Blue 105120 cardstocks as my base and also for the large butterfly.  I dry embossed Whisper White cardstock 100730 using the Elegant Bouquet 115964 embossing folder.  The butterflies were cut using the Beautiful Butterflies Sizzix die 114507.  The small butterflies are cut from Whisper White and embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder117335.  I took the picture before I put three Basic Rhinestones 119246 in the body of the smaller butterfly.  I hope you enjoy these cards.  You can order supplies to create these cards here Click on shop now or you can get products free by having some friends over for a workshop.  Don't want to clean or need a girl's night out? You are welcome to have it at my house.  You bring the people and I will even provide the snacks.
