A card with a friend...


Hello sweet bloggers,

I had a friend over for some crafting fun... and this is what we made. 

We used wall paper on a metallic cream card stock and the butterflies were punched out of the same wall paper. The sentiment is hand written - you did not need to guess that. Lol.

I am trying to keep my cards very basic in order to rest my hands.





Below is my friend with the card... wonder what is sweeter? Her smile or the card???



I am going to enter this card in
Make it Monday - anything goes.



Thanks for visiting and I will come by soon.

Hugs,

Monica

hi monica - what an elegant card -I always love those butterflies - is that material you have used to as it looks very much like a brocade.

Monica this card is just beautiful and I would have thought that was a stamp you have used....not your beautiful handwritting. Glad to hear you are slowly on the mend. What a great pair we make. Thanks for your lovely comments over my way.

Hi Monica

I think your cards is very elegant. I love the monochromatic style and the butterflies are beautiful.

Your handwriting is amazing, the sentiment looks computer generated. I wish I could write like that.
