Best Wishes...

Hey Ya'll,
Thanks so much for visiting today!  My Mom has been working with someone who is moving on in her career.  This friend has wanted a Cricut ever since she first saw one, but either time or budget always got in the way.  So... several ladies in the office got together and purchased one for her as a "We will Miss You" gift!  How cool is that?!?  So, anyway, I can't let anyone get a new Cricut without providing a little inspiration to go along with it, so I put together this quick card for Mom so that everyone in who went together on the gift could sign it.
 This was all about Purple and Lime.  The decorative mat underneath is made using the Glitter Lace technique.  It's glittered in a purple and a lavender glitter.  The Best Wishes and the Butterfly are both from the Paper Lace Cartridge.  I just got this one and LOVE IT! BTW, did you know that PC just released Paper Lace 2?  Hmmm... guess that will be in the library soon...  Hee! Hee!  Anyway, I used 3D adhesive to make the butterfly wings stand out and grabbed the I-Rock to add a couple of gems.
The inside of the card is the same as the front with a sentiment mat added.  I used Glossy Effects on the sentiment to make it stand out a little bit more as well.  The purple cuts were on a shimmery paper and the gloss effects really made it pop.  This is certainly a card that looks better in person than in pictures.  Well ya'll, it looks like we have another addict on our hands.  Hopefully she will enjoy her new bug as much as we all have!  Thanks so much for visiting today!  We would love to hear your comments!
