Designer paper. And kraft. On one card. Made by me. *squeal*
I know you're shocked. Do you need a minute to recover? Take all the time you need.
Because here it is, waiting for you, and it only took about twenty minutes from start to finish.
This dp (no idea who made it...anyone recognize it?) was a piece I bought several years ago and posted on my inspiration board just to admire because it was sooooo pretty. But no way could I use it on a scrapbook page since I have boys. Besides, pictures would cover up the beauty, wouldn't they?
Well, now, several years later, I felt perfectly justified in making it earn its keep. The first piece I cut didn't quite work with the butterfly because the flowers weren't placed right, so I cut another piece (I KNOW! SHOCKING!) and tried again.
Oh, me. Oh my.
The rhinestones are champagne colored, so their pinkish tone was perfect. This card looks even better IRL. I love, love, love it so much.
And we have Mary Dawn to thank because it never would have happened if not for her throwing down the gauntlet. So click on over to My Pink Mexico and see what wonderfulness she's posted today. And remember...leave a comment here and on My Pink Mexico each day this week to maximize your chances to win the FAB give-away we're doing: a Big Bite and $25 gift certificate to PTI! BTW, to see yesterday's card made with burgundy button and sentiment, visit Mim's blog. She did a lovely job kicking that card up a notch with dude color added to the brown!
