Floral Card for Friend

This lovely floral card was made for a friend and went out in today's mail. To make this card, I started with a base of Medium Spring Green ColorMates cardstock from World Win, topped with a layer of Dark Spring Green Colormates cardstock. The printed layer is a pattern that I got in a 12" x 12" scrapbooking pack at Dollar Tree a while back,; I only have a small piece of it left now. Then I used the Dark Spring Green cardstock to matte the floral motifs. Those are from another giftwrap paper that I've had for a really long time. Under each of the floral squares, I ran a strip of ribbon and then attached bronze butterfly brads on each ribbon strip. The card measures 4" x 6 7/8", not my usual size, but I had some envelopes this size so decided to do something a little different. This is one of those cards I was tempted to keep because I liked it so much.

And there you have it....
