Peace

This is the card I made for Gina. As most of you know, her father passed away recently and I wanted to send a card to let her know I am thinking of her. If you would like to send a card to Gina, please mail it to this address...

I colored the butterfly from Take Flight with Copic markers and cut it out. Then I embossed it with clear EP. The ovals are cut from Spellbinders nestabilities. The top oval is sponged and stamped with images from Tropical Flowers, using Creamy Caramel and So Saffron inks.

The larger background panel is sponged with So Saffron and embossed with my Perfectly Paisley Cuttlebug folder. I punced the swirls from my EK Success flourish punch from Kiwi Kiss and Basic Black cardstock and layered them. The card base is Kiwi Kiss. The sentiment is from Botanical Dreams.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a happy day!
