Another try at the PDCC

Just a quick post before heading to bed. I love this color combo and wanted to make one more card for the Play Date Cafe Challenge. I used the Fabulous Flourish and just added some purple punched butterflies that were also stamped with La Lettre. I found the big tear drop shaped gems in my stash and thought they were perfect to use for the butterflies' bodies. Then I added a few Hero Hues purple gems to finish off the card. The sentiment is from a Flourishes set.



Thanks so much for visiting! I hope your week is off to a good start. We are getting 5 to 8 more inches of snow today/tonight and our total so far this year is 60 inches! The average by this time of year is usually around 34. You all know just how I feel about shoveling, so I won't say anymore. . . .Really can't wait for Spring. . . .*SIGH*

This is gorgeous Barb. I so love the crispness of the black florish and those butterflies are just so elegant. Wow you do such amazing work.

A very Beautiful card Barb, it comes across crisp and clean, your eye is drawn to the butterflies that adds such a Wow factor.
You are having the snow and Queensland Australia has just been hit by a massive grade 5 Cyclone (Yasi)don't know the extent of the damage yet. But they have had a terrible couple of months over there.
