Beautiful....

I decided to step away from fall themed cards and make some pretty ones :)

I used the Bloom collection by Crate Paper -such gorgeous designs and colors!


First up, I used some MFT dies along with a Concord & 9th stamp set for this one.  The stamped sentiment is mounted on foam squares.  I added a bit of interest to the butterfly by zig zag stitching down the middle. 

Then I didn't want those scraps to go to waste so I created this skinny card.  If I received a card like this I would just keep it on my desk for a decoration.  I just tucked bits and pieces down the seam of the two papers.  The main sentiment is mounted on foam squares.

Pretty is right! Gosh, those butterflies make me smile. I really like the idea of stitching down the body on the one. That looks neat! The sentiments are great reminders for us, too. :)

Gorgeous cards, Laurel! That collection is so soft and beautiful, and your designs really let that beauty shine! Loving all the layers, and your stitching is just awesome. Absolutely adore what you did with your "scraps" on the second one!
