Grateful Heart

I love the sentiment, "Start each day with a Grateful Heart".   I couldn't resist buying the stamp set 'Vintage Rose Medallions' by JustRite which contains this and other wonderful sentiments.  I made 10 cards just like this one to take to my Stampin' Up card exchange group.  I didn't have time to add the butterflies before having to go to my group so I ended up adding them to the card I posted on The Paper Temptress Blog.

Here's some of the cards ready to go to the card exchange.  I had either white or pink flowers on them for the ladies to choose from.

I used pink from the Basis Cardstock Pack and ran it through Cuttlebug's Juli's Garden embossing folder.  I stamped the image on Heavenly White Cardstock  and colored it with copics.

I punched the butterflies out of Magenta Vellum but since the large butterfly was going to be on top of the pink, I punched it out again in Heavy Duty Clear Vellum and layered the magenta butterfly on top of it to help it stand out.  You can see some of the details better in the photo below.

I added a strip of Laser Silver Lustre on the bottom of the card.  Isn't that gorgeous paper?  I then added some pleated ribbon, a flower and some pearls to the butterflies.

Thank you for coming by!  Hope you get some crafty moments this weekend!  Don't forget to leave a comment!  Everyone loves comments.
