Sending hugs and prayers

Hi friends.   I was inspired by the sketch over at Fusion challenge, the Trend Watch challenge at Paper Smooches and I am also going to send this card to Maddy next week.

Here is the sketch:

Here is the Paper Smooches Trend Watch Inspiration picture:

I embossed the image from Summer Silhouettes in Gold and punched my butterflies out of vellum cardstock.  Added a gold sequin to the middle and stamped the sentiment from Spiritual Sampler by Paper Smooches. 

Another one using different colors and bigger butterflies:

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Cardstock:  Pretty In Pink, Early Espresso, Vellum
Ink:  Versamark, Early Espresso

  4. WOW!!! Just GORGEOUS! LOVE the beautiful vellum butterflies! So glad you played along with us this week at Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge!!!

  5. BeeYOOtiful! Both of them, but you know me, I'm a sucker for pink, so that's my fave. Lovin' the vellum flutterbies and the embossing, both dry and heat. Gorgeous cards both!

  6. Understated elegance - love the card in pink - the gold & vellum butterflies really pop!

  7. The embossing is great, both the gold heated one and the scored one on the bottom.

  8. Both of your cards are just beautiful and your design works so nicely for thinking of you cards.

  9. Beautifully elegant design that totally captures the the essence of your message! The velum butterflies are beautiful paired with the sentiments.
