To a Very Special Friend

Hi everyone!  I hope you are well.  Today, I am prepping for a colonoscopy tomorrow so am doing things to take my mind off it!  Can only have liquids and jello.  I figure if I spend most of the time crafting, it will keep my mind off food.

My card today was made with the beautiful Pion Design papers, A Day in May.  I love these papers!

I began by adhering a couple sheets of the patterned paper to a cream cardstock base and inking the edges.  Isn't the image pretty?  A Memory Box diecut, Catalina Wreath, was given a coat of Martha Stewart glitter and placed to frame the image.   Recollections self-adhesive lace and flowers were then added.  The sentiment was cut from the papers as was the butterfly.  A vintage button and seam binding were added to the upper right corner.

Well, I guess I'll have my lunch of chicken broth and tea and then decide what to craft.  I made a tag from these papers yesterday, so maybe I'll make a few more.  I am doing a tag swap which is running until January.  Thank you so much for your sweet comments and taking the time to stop by.  Have a wonderful week!
