Sending Smiles Across the Miles

I made this card to send to Lucille for the May Card Chain Challenge (I can reveal the card as Lucille has told me she's received it).  I made my card following the Colour Palette Option, Sketch Option and Theme Option (butterfly and friendship).

The card and ribbon are from my snippets drawer so I'm heading into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

6" x 6" cream speckled card blank
The Best of Cardmaking Magic Butterfly Stamp and Die
Stamps for All Occasions sentiment stamp
Versafine Olympia Green ink
Red and yellow coloured pencils
Snippets of cream speckled and green matt card, yellow ribbon

I trimmed the cream speckled card to a square and stamped the sentiment in the top corner.  I wrapped a yellow ribbon around the lower section before layering the panel onto green card and attaching it to the card front.  I used green ink to stamp the butterfly onto cream speckled card and cut it with the coordinating die.  I coloured the butterfly with red and yellow coloured pencils before attaching it to the card.

This is the lovely friendship card I received from Greta.

Gorgeous card Kath - as always, so crisp and neat as well. And I love Greta's too - I wonder if that's 'our' Greta?

Sorry I'm a bit late commenting!
