Thanks So Much

I don't know about you, but I was shocked to see the Square Lattice embossing folder on the retiring list!  I love that folder, and use it all the time.  I just love the unique texture it gives, but hopefully there will be something similar in the new catalog.

Because I love this folder so much, I thought I'd show it off with this card.  I really like to layer it on a same colored card base, as it gives a subtle bit of texture and interest without drawing attention away from the main image. 

I'm also linking this card to the Fab Friday challenge.  This one was a color challenge and was really tough for me!  These are NOT colors I would normally use together, but I was pleasantly surprised to see them work as well together as they do.  That's why I like to do challenges...they push me outside my comfort zone.  Considering the creative block I've had going for the last few weeks, this was just the push I needed!

  1. April, What a beautiful collection of flowers and butterflies! You've really picked up on the essence of this color challenge. Thanks for playing along with the FabFri challenge this week.

  2. I think you pulled our colors off beautifully! I like the multi colors for the grass/leaves and then the butterflies popped on top. The little tags are super sweet too! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
