Polka Dots and Butterflies....

I've been getting so much inspiration on Pinterest lately.  Really has my mojo going crazy!  I'll show you 2 cards today that I made this week...

I almost CASE'd this card from one on a blog called Polka Dots and Paper.  The difference... color, text, and text location.  This is a great card for using scraps. I may make some kits of this card with different texts and colors for different occasions.  I may even change buttons to flowers...  Who knows.

The card that inspired this actually was a lot different except for the fact that it used an embossing folder.  I actually like the inspiration card better so, until I can get one that more closely resembles it the blog name will wail.  I used a stamp set by Red Rubber Designs called Happily Grateful, a text by Hero Arts, and a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I think I would have gotten more of my desired result if I had used my Wizard as I can get better embossing with it.

Here it is a bit closer.  Not quite what I wanted but I like it.  My purple ribbon didn't match very good but my lighter purple looked even worse.  I feel good that I got ALL my Mother's Day cards in the mail.  I'll show you the one I made my mom in my next post.  It's a real hoot, and no, it's not owls.  And  did you realize that I posted 2 days in a row??  Thanks to Pinterest for all the inspiration (and, of course, blogs that I follow!).
