Butterflies, cupcakes, coffee, and a Romantic poem
This week's Queen for the Day at Splitcoast Stampers is Angela (aka Arizona Maine) who is a very talented card artist. I cased this lovely card out of her gallery. What a gallery that girl has!
I could make a zillion variations of this card! The papers did all the work (The Mariposa stack from DCWV). I used a sheet for my center panel and cut the butterfly out of another sheet to use as the focal point. It is actually a card for a friend at work - hope he doesn't mind it is a bit girly with the pearls and swirls.
I also cased this week's Featured Stamper - Debbie (aka swldebbie) who has a darling gallery full of lovely CAS sketches and fun images. This is her card that I cased.
The image I used is from Fresh Brewed Designs and is available free if you join their facebook party. The rules are that join the facebook party, use the image, and do paper piecing or piercing.
The challenge details can be found here.
Lastly, one of my oldest DD friends is having her first wedding anniversary this year. Her husband wrote her a poem and wanted me to make a card for him to give her. Isn't that totally romantic? I used my current favorite dies - the MFT rolled roses and made several different cards for him, and I have posted my two favorites. I can't wait to hear what she thought of that sweet poem he wrote her!
