Great Friend!

This is a dreadful photo. I would love to know how people get their cards to look all nice and straight and in proportion! Guess you get the idea though of what I did. I saw a card done with a similar sketch on SCS at some stage and in similar colours too to match the Walk in the Park DSP.

For my card I have used the butterfly from the Great Friend set and the wording from the set Oval All. Both of these sets are in the latest Spring Mini catalogue and both are beautiful! The scalloped punch is also in the mini.

Colours used are those to match the DSP and I used Basic Grey, So Saffron, Baja Breeze and Cameo Coral. I used an SU embossing folder for the top of the grey card and Kaisercraft pearls on the butterflies.

It does look really pretty IRL and thank you to whoever inspired me with their sketch. I remember she had used the Trendy Trees set on her card - it was lovely.

This is gorgeous Jean - I just love this butterfly - and this layout is beautiful too - don't you just wish you could show everyone how it looks IRL??? I don't think photos are ever as good as the REAL thing!

This card is just gorgeous & what a lovely layout for this set. I know what you mean about photo's, I take so much time photographing my cards to get them to look good but they always look better IRL,
