Faux Silk True Friendship Card

Hello Crafteteers!

I would like to share a card I finished last night.  It was too fun making a faux silk background card, playing with my new paper (Zephyr from Prima) and one of my favorite Spellbinders (Opulent Ovals).  Time just flew by in my little crafty room!  Don't you just love creating?

I can't even guess what layout number this was for me.  First I had it vertical, then a larger size, smaller size, rotated it, smaller size, different dies, different inks, etc.  It was one of those nights that to try out new techniques, dies and stamps.  This ended up being my favorite layout so I secured every bit down and reluctantly went to bed.  Ah...if only our winning lotto numbers could hit so that I could go into work later...or have more days off!  :)
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!

  2. This is gorgeous, Kathy Jo! It was well worth all the tinkering! I go through that process with everything I design. I actually love the process! Your faux silk background is very nicely done and I think your corners were a nice touch since they help the eye perceive the pattern of the paper, as does your beautiful butterfly! Nice yellow highlights! Thanks for dropping this off by our house here at 613 Avenue Create!
