Random Act of Kindness

This beautiful card was sent to me by Carol Milham. I FINALLY found the stamp set Stella Stamper and Carol was gracious enough to sell her to me. I've been looking for that set for YEARS!!! Much to my surprise, when I opened the envelope, this lovely card was also enclosed. It's made with the retired God's Beauty hostess set. It's hard to see, but the background the focal pieces are on is a Cuttlebug folder, Argyle. Now, you know I had to have this folder as I LOVE texture on my cards. I'm so glad Stampin' Up! has added more folders to their current catalog.

She embossed the butterfly and flowers on vellum cardstock with black embossing powder and colored them on the reverse side with markers. The butterfly and two of the flowers are popped with dimensionals. The flowers have lemon yellow liquid pearls in the center to give them more dimension. The leaves are stamped on Whisper White and punched with a large scalloped circle punch. The sentiment is punched with the word window. The ribbon is the Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon. I'm REALLY going to miss the old In Colors, but I have to say I'm enjoying the new ones. :-D

Hope you all enjoyed this card as much as I did. I definitely see a CASEing in my future!!!

Thanks for looking!
