Sending Smiles

I cut a trio of these little beauties using a patterned paper pad from our parent company, Memory Box called Anemone. I picked a coordinating lavender from their Lagoon Solid Core paper and used silver from the Festive Glitter pad for their bodies.

I know there aren't plaid butterflies in nature, but it's fun to get creative with our paper versions! This sentiment comes from the Memory Box Gracious Floral set. I've heat embossed it with Liquid Platinum embossing powder. The finishing touch was a sprinkling of clear fairy jewels.

Hello, my lovely friend, Lisa! 💜🤗 What a beautiful card! Those butterflies are everything! So gorgeous!

So happy to see these this morning and that Mr. Glitch has skeedaddled!

You know butterflies have a special place in my world, Lisa - yours are even more beautiful! LOve the plaid wings and these beautiful shades of lavender!

So beautiful! I struggle using papers like the plaid for diecuts, but you've inspired me to try again! That is a wonderful cover plate!

Lisa, this is so feminine and lacy and beautiful, right down to the last detail. I never saw plaid look so pretty!

Your butterflies are lovely, Lisa, and I am coveting that coverplate.

What a fabulous card, Lisa. That background is fantastic. It reminds me of eyelet, which I love, The butterflies are so pretty - can't get enough of your "Nordic" creations. The colors and paper you used are perfect and the jewels are the perfect finish. I just love it!

Just love the combo of plaids and solid, Lisa - gorgeous trio of butterflies atop the coverplate!!

Gorgeous card, Lisa. Love the little touches of patterned paper on the butterflies!
