I'm back with my second project for Cheery Lynn! I needed something quick, as this came up a bit unexpectedly. It is for my grandmother, a very special lady to me. My grandfather passed away three days ago. I don't have anything for a sympathy card (that is now on my list of things to get!), but I really wanted to let her know that she is in my thoughts, especially since I am unable to make it to the funeral. She is quite elderly, so I was wanting something a bit elegant/pretty, and a bit on the vintage side as well. Here is what I came up with:
I love my Cheery Lynn butterflies just as much as I love the flowers. They are so delicate, and still can be shaped into a dimensional embellishment just as you would a flower. It is also so much fun to play around with bits and pieces of different dies to create different looks. The top border above the ribbon is a side I cut off from the Dutch Doily Rectangle Frame. I've also used half of a Polynesian Sails Oval on the bottom half of the card. Added a few other embellishments, and viola! Done in under half an hour.
I'm off to drive Jordan to camp. Wish us luck that she doesn't get homesick again this year. She is so excited to go, but already nervous about it.
Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend!
