Cute card but I should have thought about it first because I don't have an envelope to fit it! (5" x 3"). Oh well. I will have to whip one up when I have a second. Am loving Seeing Spots nonetheless.

The simplistic design works really well I think. You could 'butch' it up a bit by not having a butterfly on there if the card was for a man. Maybe a pint glass or something instead?!

The good thing about this project is that it has endless possibilities in terms of patterns of paper and messages to write on the front. Plus it's a great way to use up any smaller pieces of patterned paper.

The card uses the Mr&Mrs stamp set that I originally bought to make our wedding invitations. I hadn't really given the set much thought since until I saw this card. I love how the flower stamp makes unique designer paper-style background. Plus I got to use my new Bold Brights markers to colour them in (perfect when watching tv), although the original card by Julie was more a more muted colour palette. The colour combinations are endless with this card, which only makes me like it more.

I don't know if it's clear from the picture but the flower head has been decoupaged using a 1" circle punch to raise it up and make it more of a feature.
This card is featuring Pixie Pink, a colour I have been using a lot as I bought lots of it to make birth annoucements but then I hadn't realised it wasn't realistic to make them after giving birth. D'oh!
