very nice!

Kim, please send your mailing address to scrappingg@gmail.com.  You have 2 weeks to reply!

Now onto my card for today.....I created a birthday card to share with you guys today.  Take a look, tell me what you think. 

This card was actually rather simple to make.  It's a 5 X 7 card and all of my paper is from Recollections.  I basically matted this gorgeous paper on to my card base to create the card.  The butterfly on the front of my card was cut from the Picturesque Cricut Cartridge and was cut at 1 3/4 inches.  My ribbon is from Walmart and the sentiment is from DRS. 

For the inside of the card, I just matted another piece of that gorgeous paper that had a printed butterfly and space to write!  

Thanks for stopping by today, enjoy the rest of your week.

  3. Hi Mary Ann...what a beautiful card and such a lovely design...


  4. This is absolutely stunning. I don't know how to use big papers that are so pretty and yet can't use them. Your card is a perfect example to get the best out of pretty paper I might not use. Unfortunately, I got rid of a lot of such paper, but I'll go through my stash and remember your wonderful technique. The butterfly is gorgeous and I will have to remember that cartridge and see if I have it.

  5. What a nice thing for you to do!
    Congrats to Kim!
