PTI's Create Along With Us

Hello friends~ I'm getting back into a routine and found myself getting a good dose of paper therapy today in my craft room. I feel like I've missed so much between being gone on vacation and losing my niece. I wanted to thank everyone for their outreach of comments, prayers and even cards I received in the mail! Your thoughtfulness lifted my heart and I don't think I could ever say thank you enough. I count myself blessed to have you all as friends, even though we've never met.
With that being said, I made a card today for PTI"s Create Along With Us challenge using Betsy Veldman's card as my inspiration.

I stamped the sentiment from Graceful Greetings and used lot of different images from Embellished Elegance, Make it Market ~ Garden Gild, Graceful Greetings and WPlus9's Botanical Bunch for the flowers and leaves. Some yellow Gelato's was rubbed over the stamped flowers to soften them.
I strayed a little from Betsy's design to put my own spin on her beautiful card, by adding a strip of Spring Woods Paper Collection and a strip of card stock that I colored black and added some black Wink Of Stella on to make it shimmer. The butterfly from Beautiful Butterflies & Layers is popped up with a little bit of foam tape for dimension.


I'll also be entering this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday Challenge
Word Art Wednesday

Thanks so much for stopping by. Blessings~ Birgit

  1. Oh Birgit...this is just stunning! I am just so WOW'd by this beauty...the flowers are just so soft and pretty and almost airy looking if that makes sense? The strip of paper from the Spring Woods Collection is just the perfect compliment to your flowers, butterfly, and graceful greeting. LOVE everything about this card my friend, and so good to have you back! :0)
