Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! We are halfway to the weekend already!! Woohoo!! It's my turn to post on the Craftin Desert Divas blog and I have a Thanks card to share with you today :)

For me, this is pretty CAS!! You know I love layers ;) The base and white paper are heavyweight cardstock from Canvas Corp. The patterned paper is from Prima. The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA.

I just love these circles. I fell in love with them from Memory Box. They have three similar sets. This one is Large Ringlets. The butterflies are Memory Box also and they were popped up with foam tape.

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, this is gorgeous! I nearly ordered one of the MB circle dies over the weekend, but somehow resisted! Don't be surprised if you see me own this in the coming months, though. ;) I particularly love it to place fluttering butterflies atop, just like you've done here. They are so whimsical and delightful and really don't need a billion layers. I love how playful they look and they stand on their own. :o) The fluttery bow is just perfect. Gorgeous work as always, my dearest Lisa! Have a sparkly and twinkly night. :o)

Hugs and blessings,

Darlene said...

Those circles are amazing! I love the distressed edges on this. Normally distressed edges aren't "my thing" but I LOVE the effect they are giving this particular design.
