I just love her creations! You can see the one I've cased here. My sister-in-law's (Lillian) birthday is coming up February 25th and I decided this card would be the perfect one for her. She is my husband's baby sister and we have a really great relationship!
Here is the front view of my version of Elly's card....you will notice that I did not use a sentiment on the card front because I think it would detract from the beauty of Elly's design (please click on the photo to see an enlargement with all of the tiny details):
Here is a closeup of the centerpiece of the card front:
While check this out......my new way of adding antennas to butterflies. The butterfly punch that I used is small so I used tiny pieces of beading wire with some liquid pearls at the tips and let them dry on my craft mat! What do ya think? Another thing I want to point out is that I made an outline mat for the small Spellbinders "Fleur De Lis" die that I used for the centerpiece. The leaves and flowers were cut using my Pazzles "Inspiration Creative Cutter". The leaves were a free SVG download from MTCSCAL e-files. If you have a digital cutting machine and have never visited his site, you should...........it's wonderful!
Thanks for stopping and please be sure to visit Elly's blog.... I promise she will inspire you to make something really beautiful!!! I believe I'm one of her #1 fans.
After Wednesday, I will be posting another card that I made this past week for a dear friend's birthday. I can't post it now because she does check out my blog occasionally. At any rate, please stop by later in the week to check it out...........I did something really different on it!
