Just A Note--at last!



Back from our mini vacation at the lake just in time to work the w/e.  We had a great time--gorgeous weather, wonderful clear water for swimming & an awesome cabin (I'd call it a house!) with no one around & a great view!  I've missed my crafting time, so today after work while doing laundry & trying to finish our tapes of the Olympics, I also made this card for Flourishes challenge HERE to have 1 more chance to win the August release.
Kraft works well with so many colors & I hadn't used blue for awhile.  The stamps are both Flourishes--Botanical Bookplates & Taglines.  This is the first time I've used the Spellbinders embossing folder & the Just Imagine Crafts little butterfly punch.  Thanks for coming by.  I'm going to catch up on all your blogs soon!

    Your card has a unique design, with many areas of interest; texture and your butterflies create the movement and dimension. Lovely card.
