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.
Oh these colors are so fresh and springy!
Cathy I really like these colors together! I've been enjoying Berry Sorbet quite a bit lately and I think this card is beautiful! All of the details come together perfectly! By the way, your blog design is so pretty!
Those colors couldn't be more perfect together, Cathy! I love the background.
This card certainly heralds spring to me and definitely something to look forward to. All of the creative elements just work magically in this card. What a wonderful start to the 2011 crafting year.
Cathy, this is so pretty!!! I love the color combination and the butterflies are gorgeous! The ribbon adds that finishing touch! Can't wait to see what you do for the rest of 2011!
