A commissioned card

Hello lovely bloggers,

Hope you are doing well and are enjoying the sunshine...
My mum is over to visit me from New Delhi so there is a nice feeling in the air...She will make some of her famous paisley cards for me for sure... and of course some yummy food as well.

Zeenya got back from her five day school trip and she had a ball... she bonded with her peers did lots of activities one of them being a 12 km walk in the mountains!!! Kayaking was another and batik painting too. 

Here are two cards I made for a lady who wants thank you cards - she can choose the one she fancies.

The blue textured paper is from the book store close by and the creamy paper is from a wall paper role... Funny how different the two cards look even though they have the same paper.
The butterflies are from Petaloo and the label is from Spellbinders. The ribbon is from my stash.
The creamy butterflies have been punched and the tiny pearls on them are from my stash.
What do you think of these cards? Which one do you like?
The sentiment is handwritten the first card and embossed on the second one.
They look nicer in real life  though.

Wish you a happy weekend,

Will come and visit a bit later as am off to eat my lunch.

Hi Monica,
I can't choose a favourite, as they are both beautifully made.

I'm pleased to hear that Zeenya had a lovely time on her school trip, and that your mum is spending some time with you xx

Can't believe I have missed so many of your wonderful cards. Those butterflies are so pretty. Lovely colour you have used on the cards too.
