Oh So Pretty!

Hello everyone,

I've had my fill of neutral cards!  I am more than ready and quite happy to put the somewhat blander paper scraps back in their assigned envelops and pull out pretty and colourful.

The printed paper is BasicGrey Sultry layered on Stampin' Up Lucky Limeade.  The images are Stampin' Up Pocket Silhouettes stamped in Stampin' Up Smoky Slate, Certainly Celery, Pear Pizzazz, Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo, and Ranger Spun Sugar Distress ink on Whisper White and layered on more Whisper White.  The sentiment is Bonnidee French Wording #1 stamped in Early Espresso.  The butterflies are die cut from Close To My Heart Smoothie with Sizzix Embosslits Beautiful Wings.  The embellishments are pearls of unknown origin.

This card uses a stamped focal point that I've now repeated a couple of time with this card and this card because I like the effect so very much.  These butterflies have been lying around my desk for ages, I actually can't remember which card they were originally used for.  They work perfectly with the pink flowers on this printed paper.  I don't think all sympathy cards need to be somber.  Sometimes 'pretty' is just what's needed to raise spirits.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.

  1. This is definitely not neutral! It is bright and pretty and there is so much to look at and enjoy. I agree that sympathy cards don't need to be all somber and morose. A pretty card helps celebrate the life that was.
