Just a Note ...

Just a Clean and Simple card to try and cheer up a friend.

I embossed the background with a Sizzix texture plate when I was down in Des Moines in June. The 'tag' is a Sizzix die cut that I cut out of Mauve Mist cardstock by Stampin’ Up! The sentiment is from a Studio G dollar set and I inked it with Perfect Plum. The main image panel is done with a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Sweet Dreams. I colored the flowers and stems with SU! markers in Perfect Plum and Mellow Moss. The background is done with Pale Plum. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch. I added white dots with a gel pen to the butterfly and also to the flower centers, and pearls to the sentiment panel and the butterfly body. I matted everything with Pale Plum

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
