Shadow Box Thank You Card

I've tried a couple of these cards by Lori Whitlock before without much success, but I can be very determined sometimes and this time it paid off.  Lookie what can happen when you don't give up!

I used some very heavy cardstock this time and it really did help.  The card still only folds flat in one direction but I'm ok with that.

So how do you think I'm progressing with shaking the guilt for making simple cards?...?...
Silly peeps, you should know me better than that!   LOL!!

Butterfly Flourish Card

Another flourish design by Daniela Angelova that cuts like butter!

Not that it really needed it, but I added an extra darker purple butterfly layer under the top white butterfly to add a bit more interest, and then I pop-dotted both layers separately to give some extra dimension along with the pearls.

I think the simplicity of Daniela's designs is gorgeous.  But I can't help feeling a little guilty and then compelled to add something extra to them.  Kind of like if I don't, then I am somehow cheating because they are so quick and easy.

I sooo need to get over that, I know, lol!

Easter Bunny Flourish Card

This little bunny design by Daniela Angelova in the Silhouette Design Store is absolutely adorable! The flourish is easy to cut because it is not too delicate (I always appreciate that!) and with a few bits of bling and pop dots I had a quick and easy card in no time.

I hope everyone who celebrates Easter had a great day with family.  We had lots of good company, a fun egg hunt for the little ones, and some very full tummies of way too much yummy food - the perfect day!
