Picture the Light in Your Life!

Friday, May 14, 2010


This is a card for a colleague who is leaving our company. She's taking her life in a whole new direction. Thus, the butterfly and the simple "Fly" sentiment.

The card answers several challenges:
Paper Play: Brown and...
Cricut Cardz: 3 circles
Stampavie: Pink
Totally Gorjuss: pink and green
ABC: U is for unused stash
Sentimental Sundays: For someone special
Cute Card Thursday: someone special
Incy Wincy: Color Challenge
Stamp Something: Celebrate Something
Fab N Funky: metal or metallic
The card design is based on the sketch from Truly Scrumptious:

The butterfly is reverse stenciled. The medallion is lifted on pop dots. Two colors of cardstock are punched and offset behind the sentiment.

This is the first time I've used Mays silk ribbon on a card. It's SO nice to work with! It's not available to me locally, so I ordered it from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Ribbon store online. She has TONS of ribbon in all kinds of colors, but I started with some I knew I'd use: cream, black, and burgundy. I'm sure you'll see more ribboned-up cards soon!

Thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
