You Make A Difference In My Life

Verve photo LucySketch1picA.jpg

Used this great sketch by Lucy Abrams for this card.  Slowly moving out of Valentine's Day cards and into spring/summer cards (before the Mother's Day rush LOL) so pulled out my beloved Flutterby and Elegant Leaf dies from Verve.

I finally have the MFT tab dies and used one to add the secondary "thank you" sentiment to the card.  That, along with carefully using bits of my hoarded stash of Mellow Moss!  Still sad they discontinued this colour.

Short and sweet today as have lots to get done.  Wishing you a wonderful day :)

This makes me think spring, despite the snow flying outside. Beautifully composed with a wonderful pop of red from the butterfly, and great use of texture, as always.
