Here is a card I did for a friend who absolutely LOVES getting mail. She has no clue it's in the mail headed to her house, and after the week she's having taking care of the house and her siblings, she deserves to get a little surprise. The picture includes us three girls being silly for the camera. The butterflies were made by printing them out on cardstock and then destressing the edges. The flower was made by cutting out circles, crinkling the edges and holding them together with a brad.

The card was done for two challenges: Basicgrey Challenges and Simon Says Stamp!

For the Basicgrey challenge I had to use the colour combo turquoise, brown, and cream. Even my picture has those colors in them... didn't even TRY to do that. The Basicgrey I used for this card comes from the Basicgrey offbeat collection pack. (I used the paper to make the flower)

For the Simon Says Stamp! Challenge, I had to build a card from the recipe: 1 image, 2 patterned papers, 3 embellishments. I used the picture as my image, the flower and back ground paper are my two patterns, and the embellishments are: the crystal brad, the butterflies, and the tag that says "These are the days we'll remember" which is from a pack by K&Company.

This was such a fun card to make and I'm loving how it turned out!
