Dream, Today and Always!

I know I promised another card from Reason to Smile set but I had a tough time taking a picture of the cardBlue. The bulb on one of my table lightDesk Lampburnt out and it'll cost me about $19.99 to replace it. I guess I just have to wait until the weekend to take photos of my cards because by the time I get home from work, it's too dark.

So, my routine will change for now. I'll be making cards every night after my daughter is in bed (of course, done with homework, lunch and school clothes are ready for the following day) and on weekends I'll be taking pictures on what I've created...NO PROBLEMO!

These 3 cards were created over the weekend. I visioned them differently and wanted to add an acetate card but I was actually pretty happy at the end.

Sentiment Dream, Today and Always stamps are from Green Grass Stamps and stamped on a Paper Trey White card stock using Pretty In Pink, Bashful Blue and Mellow Moss classic ink and layered it with matching card stock . Another

Paper Trey White card stock measured 4 1/16" by 5 1/4" was run through Cuttlebug using Stylized Flower and Textile embossing folder and added matching cardstock as a base. The butterflies are from Martha Stewart craft punch, added glue and dipped on a Boho Shimmer for the glittery effect. Do you like it? I love it!

I think all three cards are fantastic. Simple in design but dramatic in effect.
