Bricks and Vines

Hello and welcome. I hope you've enjoyed a wonderful week end. I'm very excited today because my cousin is coming for a few days. She told me she wanted to learn how to make cards from the expert ...I said I'd try to find one.

Todays card came about because I wanted to use the Brick Wall ef and add vines (of some sort). The vine overlay is a card cut file from the Silhouette. For the butterfly I used SU's Butterfly Basics stamp set and Butterflies Thinlets. I also cut the butterfly from chipboard to give it just a little shadow. Flowers are from a SU punch. I couldn't figure out how to get just a little texture on the vines, but not the border, so I just added a little color using a make up applicator and Pistachio Pudding stamp pad.

Thanks for stopping by. I probably won't post again till the middle of August because the day after my cousin leaves, we go to MN for a week.....YAY!! I get to see my kids.  Comments are greatly appreciated. Have a great day.

Take Care!
