Today and Always

It has been a few days since I have posted - I have had a influx of magazine commissions (always exciting) and some special posts that will be happening next month - I love this time of the year for that - they may involve the word - giveaways - so keep watching this space!!


There is something to be said for simplicity...it is not always something that comes easy to me, but I am learning to appreciate it and love to challenge myself to have a try. I have to admit I have gone with the patterned paper from Websters Pages and was inspired by the adorable little butterfly on the lower right edge,  The card base has been cut using Spellbinders 5 x 7 Matting Basics A and the Platinum Die Cutting & Embossing Machine.


I have stamped and coloured two butterfly's from the Penny Black Inc. Social Butterfly set, added some shimmer and Want2Scrap bling to the body and leaves, along with a beautiful bling border across the top.  As always my card is held together by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner and 3D Foam Squares used for dimension under the wings - just the perfect amount of height.


A sentiment from SRM Stickers is the perfect finishing touch - not too little and not too much - don't you think!?

    1. Hi Rene, thank you for your lovely comment - and yes - I love the Platinum - it is the 'grunt machine' for Spellbinders and cuts so easily - if I was looking for a new machine it would definitely be my machine of choice!! Hope that helps! {{{hugs}}}
