For the first time ever, my husband actually gave me some input on a card. I told him I was a little stumped as to what kind of card to make. I knew I needed a thank you card, but not the "theme". I've been using Friends 24-7 so much that I really wanted to NOT use it. He said to do something "springy" and the first thing I thought of was flowers, then this Petal Pizzazz set I hadn't ever used yet, and then I thought of this paper from the upcoming Occasions Mini catalog called Walk in the Park. I loved the color combo in the paper pack, so this is how I came up with it. I also decided to use a little piece of the Bojo Designer Hardware that my pal Carmen sent me in my little "Friend to Friend" swap. I will have to get some more of this hardware - it's so fun!!! Anyway, I hadn't used my little Martha Stewart butterflies punch yet and really wanted to and so I decided to add some butterflies to the Scallop Oval layered sentiment. That Scallop Oval punch is quickly becoming a favorite punch of mine. I bet you can't wait for the Occasions Mini to become available April 1st to get it, huh?!?! It's super fun to use!!! So...that's it. The rest of the card is pretty self-explanatory. I hope you like it!!!!
All supplies are SU! unless otherwise noted.
