EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:
Mimi H. put together this beautiful card using Sweet Life to create a floral pattern on her butterflies. I loved how she maintained the "rule of threes" by adding the sentiment under her two butterflies.
Donna Gourley did a fabulous job on drawing inspiration from this month's photo. The die-cut butterflies along the edge really balances out the heaviness of the sentiment. The slight pattern variations on the butterfly papers adds interest without being too dramatic.
Marcia Hill used a smaller butterfly stamp to create a wonderful background for her larger die-cut butterfly accent. The small touches of gold embossing and gold thread add a wonderful sense of elegance.
Congratulations to all the winners! Please send a note to customer service to let them know you're full name and the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to! And thanks so much to everyone who played along! There were so many beautiful creations!
