Butterfly Prints/& update on my cousin


This card I made for my Aunt. I started with the stamping 411 sketch but I think I might be a little to late to enter it. I flipped the sketch on its side. It's not exact but the ideas there. Almost everything on this card is new stuff. The butterflys are from the butterfly prints set (I added dazzling diamonds to the butterflys) The background is from the new confetti stamp set (Love it). I used the new color coach for the colors on this card. I started with the butterfly stamped in Tangerine tango so I used the colors suggested for that color. They were Tangerine tango/cajun craze, so saffron, and pacific point. I added a neutral of crumb cake. The so saffron strip on the side is punched using the dotted scallooped ribbon border punch and the added bling is the new rhinestone jewels. I love how this turned out, what do you think?

I also wanted to give an update on my cousin. He was accepted into the craig rehab center in Denver. He will go there in about a week. I guess this is one of the best brain and spinal cord injury rehab centers in the country. We are very excited for him to get started on rehab and get better. We would still appreciate prayers for him. His name is Justin. Thank you so very much for your prayers:)

Hi, love the butterflies and the color combo. I find the color wheel really helpful too. We haven't received the new catalogue yet and new colors, so can still use it, but in September it all changes, so will have to get a new one. Love your card tho, and will add your cousin to my prayers. All the very best to him. Rel x
