Erika, this card is really so lovely. You are right, it would make a wonderful hand-delivered thank you card!


I love the Rich Bold Color of this one!
I can only imagine how beautiful it is IRL.
Hugs, Lourin


Those are just beautiful!!!


Fabulous card. Love the colors, the ribbon, the cut out butterflies... TFS!


I love this card! The colors are awesome, this Wild Wasabi with the Backaroo Blue are really great, it packs a lot of punch.
The embossed butterflies are awesome, I really have to start using this technique, I admit I'm a little scared to burn the paper but I guess you learn from the mistakes....:-)
I also really like what you did with the background, likely dragging you blue inkpad over the green paper, it gives more dimension to the card...

Somebody who gets a card like that for a thank-you sure would feel the love ! ;-)


The butterflys look like they're made of lace! This is such a beautiful card. The colors are great together and the ribbon and charms are just the perfect touch.


Hi Erika!
I have a question on the butterflies which are absolutely beautiful! You said you stamped them on Sahara Sand and then embossed them with clear embossing powder...did you stamp them with versamark? Then the green and blue showing from behind them is the blue and green ink over the dried embossing powder? I am new to fancy techniques and appreciate your help.

I love when you have creative days too becuase I get to enjoy whatyou have made. :) This card is stunning Erika. I must make the time very soon to make some butterflies.They are so beautiful in real life and on card-stock. I hope you keep having your wonderful creative days.

Just gorgeous, Erika! The butterflies are my favorite part because of your technique wiht the embossing powder. Very beautiful!


These butterflies looks so beautiful... TFS


Wow, this card is STUNNING!



This is simply stunning! Those butterflies look exactly like lace - that was my first thought. And I love the colour combos - you are getting better than ever!


Love this card!! Absolutely beautiful.


Your cards are amazing....I LOVE this one with the butterfies, I have this set, my daughter gave it to me for Christmas one year. I really MUST try making this card.You are right, it isn't one to put postal, but then it would be better to give it in person then you can see their reaction to its beauty....I must reread what you posted about it because I read at one point you love using clear embossing powder yet it looks like you used white. I see I have misunderstood something. Which embossing powder did you use for this? I am sorry there is so much to read here,lol, I probably missed it.I jumped in and decided to comment ,in my excitement,and haven't read everything ..I am so glad I found your site,it will go in my favorites for sure and I will be checking in regularly now....I hope you keep creating for a lonnnnng time, it will be a real treat to pop in and see what you are up to. Do you have a special craft room? I don't but wish I did, I guess I better get stamping and selling them maybe I can build a room on hahaha. What is your all time favorite technique??
Thank you for using techniques that will stretch us to grow as we try your creations....Have a splendid day! Happy stampin'! Brenda
