C'est la Vie

Another week has gone by so quickly!  Time does seem to fly.  Life can be so hectic at times, but I make it a point to take some time each week to work on a craft project.  It is my way of relaxing and something I enjoy so much.

Today's card was made with various papers from the Melissa Frances C'est la Vie 6x6 paper pad.  I love the soft, shabby chic colors and patterns of these papers.

Each pattern paper was layered onto white cardstock.  A simple seam binding bow was tied around the smaller panel.  A scalloped circular sticker from this collection was adhered to cardstock for support and attached with foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment onto it and highlighted it with a circle of pearls from Prima.  The tiny butterflies were made with a Martha Stewart punch from the same papers, edges inked and little pearls added to them.  A small piece of white crocheted trim was glued across the bottom.  At this point, I felt the card needed something else, so I added the pretty Joy Crafts butterfly diecut to the side.

I hope everything is going well for you.  Thank you so much for stopping by and your kind comments.  Have a wonderful week!
