My daughter called yesterday to say she and Linn are engaged. She said the proposal was in the butterfly exhibit at the Chicago Zoo. That was my inspiration for the butterflies on these cards. The wedding will be in June or July of 2012....I'm excited! Linn will make a great son-in-law!
Karen - Paradise Scrapbook Boutique, temped me with the new Prima Marketing DP - the Madeline collection. Mind you, I am easily tempted! The large flower is also Prima, the two smaller are from my stash. The pick is from Little Yellow Bicycle - flower stick pins. The doily is from Cheery Lyn Designs - the French Pastry die.
The butterfly and the leaves are Martha Stewart punches, the ribbon from my stash...which of course was purchased at PSB....Karen has the best ribbon! And the very best prices on the ribbon. The pearls are from Want 2 Scrap.
When I started I'd planned on making two identical cards, but as I was beginning to put glue on the back of the music sheet, I realized those flowers were too pretty to cover and the birthday card was born.....
Sometimes when I have a vision of a finished card, it just doesn't turn out the way I plan, these two cards are exactly as I saw them.
Ok....it's not raining.....should I call the girls? Or........should I head back into my studio to play? I'm sure we can walk later..... :-)
Tomorrow it's Operation Write Home Day....I hope to see everyone then.
