Anette *Day 2*

Don't you just love how Anette used the new Hero Arts grass stamp on this card:This card is like a pretty painting! I just can't get over her beautiful sky--complete with a subtle flourish that reminds me of a quiet, soft summer breeze. And that butterfly trail adds to the bright, airy feeling this stunning card evokes!

Here is my take:
See you tomorrow! :)
Supplies--Stamps: Butterfly (Hero Arts Winged Friends Digi), Flourish (Hero Arts CG119), Sentiment (Penny Black), Grass (Stampin' Up); Ink: VersaMark, Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), Black Ink (Stampin' Up); Other: Twine (Darice, Inc.), Dimensional Adhesive (All Night Media), Pearls (Recollections), Misc. Cardstock and Thread
