Best wishes, Iva

I have another card for my sister-in-law.  She had hip replacement last week, then developed complications so the recovery will not be as easy as hoped.  This is one of her favorite colors.  IRL the embossed layer is a pale color, and for the base I used a purple lightly patterned with grey - you may be able to see a bit of that at the left.  I used half of an 8.5x11 sheet, printed on the inside, and left the patterned paper for the back of the card as well. I used another of my new Darice embossing folders - Butterfly on Flower.  I used the negative of the Elizabeth Craft die cut, and tied a bow with shimmery, sheer pale purple ribbon. The card base is white - not sure why it does not show up at all.

That is a pretty embossing folder which I don't think I have seen before and it looks lovely in the purple colouring. I hope your sister in law feels better soon from her operation. Thankyou for spinning the butterfly wheel this week with me. Hugs Mrs A.

The embossing gives this card such an elegant look. Love the way you let the embossing take center stage. I hope your sister in law makes a speedy recovery. I know this card will brighten her day.
