There is more to this card then you can see good in the all started with that beautiful butterfly that Carole Beath surprised me with ... thank you so much Carole ... I had to find just the right paper for it.... and finally I did ... "Basicgrey"...the orange on the left side is a different piece from the background paper trimmed down the right scaloppeeee edge...the large flower overlapping it is trimmed around so that it will overlap the orange paper..there are pop dots placed under the edge of the flower to make it pop off the page... pop dots are under the butterfly too... I cut up some rhinestone clearance snowflakes to add to the butterfly body and to the flowers... I also used rain dots on a couple of the flowers and the butterfly... the of dragonflies and a butterfly are a stamp added to the paper...I learned this from Shelly...thanks Shelly

A friend of my son, John-Robert asked me to make a card for his girlfriend of 17 months...she is flying in next week .... I now always make two cards just alike so I will have some cards on hand ... Cory's card for his girlfriend is just like this one except it says "Together we have been on top of the world for 17 months"... I didn't need two of those so I changed the wording for a sweetheart or a friend in need of support... I was tickled with this one... thanks for looking. ~Jeannie

The Tricycle

Boy this one was tough... When I got in the middle of it I thought there was no way I was going to make it pretty!!!!... I use my Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cart for the tricycle cut it at 3.5 inches... it cuts big... I cut the Flourishes one at 4 inches one at 5 inches...the one on the inside is cut at 3.5 I think... I used Rain Dots for the center of the punched flowers which I pop dotted... the flourishes on the corner flowers are cut from the leftover paper when I cut the flourishes .... I dotted and squiggled with a white gel pen... and a green Sharpie....and I used a Garden Brad..see if you can find him...I love love those Garden Brads...
Hope you like this one..
