Friendship Blooms

     Just as I was getting ready to make my card last month for the May Card Chain Challenge (where we make cards and exchange them with other crafters and card makers around the world), I got some new dies in my mailbox (my favorite things!) so I decided it was best to put them right to work!


     We always get several choices of themes, techniques, or other things we can use on our cards and, for May, I used both the colors and the sketch.

                                          

     Notice that the die cut vases (Die-namics) and the butterflies (Press Cut) stand in for the stripes on the circles.  I cut the circles with dies from QuicKutz.  I wanted it really CAS for easy mailing but I did decorate the inside with strips of the same dark pink paper from which I had cut the circles.  I cut three of the pink vase, and stacked them together into one for a bit of dimension.  It may be hard to see in the photo but you can definitely feel it on the card itself.

     Everything on this card was made from bits and pieces of left over CS, a great way to use up leftovers.
