Subtle Sweetness

Today I want to share with you a birthday card that I made for my best friend Carol.  I call it "Subtle Sweetness".  Some of the elements I used have been sitting in my stash for some time now just waiting for me to play with them.  Why is it that we do that?  Buy things that we just HAVE to have and then don't use them.  Things we love.  This time I pulled out some dies that I got from Papertrey, Inc.  as well as my leaf stamp set.  I used Chartrouse green ink for the leaves-just the right touch of softness.  I am LOVING my new Big Shot die-cutting machine!  I also cut out two butterflies from them and sewed then together leaving a little thread on top for their antenna.  Of course I had to have my doily! Isn't the trim on the bottom beautiful?  A Wally World special..........I simply adore the background paper-so soft and feminine which is why I colored her with Copic Markers using soft blues and whites.  I decided to use a rose from Wild Orchard Crafts to replace her flower.  What do you think?  Here are several pictures of my card.  I hope you like it!  Love, Elle
