#454-455-456 Mark’s Finest Papers

Back to “work” if you call this work!  I have really missed creating with my heart.  I did it while I was ill as a distraction from feeling sorry for myself but my heart wasn’t in it.  Today I am working on an order for a sweet friend.  She needs some sympathy cards and birthday cards.  My sweet friend Angela Bode sent me that beautiful yellow and black creation back in January when a very special friend of ours died.  I loved it so much I wanted to use her design and I CASE-d it.  It was such a comfort at the time and I hope my recreation of it brings the same comfort to others. I made three different varieties of it.  ~~Now the wisteria card is all MFP stamps that have rarely been used but how beautiful of a Sympathy card they make.  I used a Spellbinders die to show case them.  The butter fly is flat against the card stock but I cut the upper wing out and used the “faux tole” technique to pop it up.  The sentiment is stamped in Lovely Lavender from Stampin’ Up.   The teeny bow is made with the bow easy.  I am so pleased how this turned out.
