So Thankful

Three days to make & post a card thanks to this virus!  I'm getting better & thankfully it's only a cold.  Anyway, here's my card for PTI MIM Heat Embossed Stencil Backgrounds
I loved Melissa's distressed look, so I did that, too.  Fun to use my kraft felt for the Twig Wreath--layered up 2 of them.  Yes, it's still winter, but nothing says you can't send a Springy card to a friend!  The Butterfly Hope die cuts were stamped in Winter Wisteria (double for the outside, once for the inside) & Lemon Tart.  They're brushed with WOS for that beautiful shimmer & are layered onto the little branches from Twig Wreath die cut from Spring Moss.  The stenciled panel is Harvest Gold & the sentiment from Twig Wreath is stamped in Winter Wisteria.  Finished off with Nuvo yellow drops.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with Dies,  Time Out & WAW.

Oh, Greta, I love this! That wreath in felt is wonderful and those butterflies, perfect! Looks like we both thought yellow and some purple hues were in order.

Oh wow, the felt wreath is awesome. It looks great on the stenciled background. It makes me happy to see a fun, fresh spring card in this terrible weather we are having here. I'm glad you are on the mend. Take good care of yourself, there is so much nasty stuff out there.

Geesh greta I sincerly hope that you are feeling much better today. It sounds like nasty cold! Your card reminds of spring and sunny days. We could use some sun here. It;s another grey and clouded day.... Ooops almost forgotten but I think you already know; your card is lovely!
