Red, White and Blue

Good morning everyone! First I would like to say Thank You so much for all of your emails and comments on wishing me a quick recovery from this bad cold that I have. I truly appreciate it all. I must say that only now I feel a little bit of a relief. It's a short post for me today.
Today is flutterby day and that would mean, it's Wednesday!! Yay! I can't wait for the weekend, depending how I feel I need to do something fun!! This week Danni has us creating cards with using only red, white and blue. This was a challenge for me because I am not used to creating with these colors unless it's close to the 4th of July.
So, I decided to use my butterfly punch from Martha Stewart and added some pearls to the centers of each butterfly to represent the body. Then kept the bottom middle circle open for the sentiment of thanks.
Here is a side view of the card to show you that I popped it up with some dimensionals but only added it to the center of the butterfly to have the wings flap.
Stamp: SU Circle of Friendship
Paper: Night of Navy, Real Red, Whisper White CS, Washington Apple DSP
Ink: Memento Black
Accessories: Pearls, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, SU scallop border punch, SU Circle
SU Circle Punches
This cute card was made for me by my friend Michelle. She and I were paired up in the one card swap that my other friend Teri started. Isn't it great that we are all friends and we all love Hello Kitty too!! She made hello kitty into a shaker card, see all the beads. I love shaker cards, they are so fun to make. Thanks Michelle, I love my card!!
Tomorrow I will be showing you my swap card for Michelle. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
