Thank you Simon Says


I  experimented with some embossing frames

and was pleasantly surprised at the results.

I did a bit of masking to stamp the ferns

then found a stamped, colored and die cut butterfly in my UFO box.

Stamped a thank you (straight, yay!)

Popped it all on a card base and was done.

Hope you are having a great weekend.
We're trying to get caught up from a few days at the Outer Banks.
Would love to have stayed longer.

Thanks for stopping by.

This is beautiful, Bonnie. The embossing adds so much to the card while still leaving it very CAS.

The masked leaves with the butterfly look wonderful against the white embossed dots! Beautiful card Bonnie! I just saw a picture of a glass winged butterfly, I didn't know it was real.
