Thinking of You

                                                                             
Happy New Year!  It has been almost one year since I started my blog and my first card of 2011 is one of encouragement meant to let someone know that I am thinking of them.  I recently won the PTI stamp set Butterfly Dreams on Niki Estes blog and this was the first opportunity I had to use it.  Berry Sorbet is such a cheerful color and the butterflies come out so crisp and clean looking when stamped in this color ink.  Spring Moss was a soft and dreamy color to pair with the Berry Sorbet cardstock.  I used the sprig from Flutterby Friend and a few Berry Sorbet flowers and a sentiment stamped in Dark Chocolate on the circular focal point panel.  Spring Moss saddle-stitch ribbon with a small tag stamped with the word "friend" were added over a Banner Builder scallop.  The last touch for this card was a cute butterfly with some pearls layered on the butterfly body popped up with dimensional foam.  All in all, a cheery little card to ring in the New Year.
