Butterfly Trio

My friend Michele loves butterflies as much as I do...and I was so happy to see this card! Very nice use of the SU Beautiful Wings Embosslit and terrific way she made each butterfly using three layers. The gems in the middle of the body give this card a finished professional look with the WOW! factor!

Remember This!

The guru of clean and simple card making is Susan Raihala, and today...she has a post on her blog that is a must read. Her last paragraph is a gem! She writes:

You have your own light to shine. I have mine. If our lights shine together for a while, well, that's just lovely, isn't it?

...and here's a not so clean and simple easel card I recently made...000h la la...I do love Paris!
