Lucy *Day 2*

Here is our next card by the oh-so-talented Lucy: I just adore this design! The die cut looks great in the center of the card. Lucy has embellished it perfectly with a touch of string and a beautiful butterfly! The polka dots in the background provide of lovely touch of pattern. And finally, the tiny, delicate stitching around the edges is a great finishing touch!

Here is my take:

See you tomorrow with another masterpiece by Lucy! :)
Supplies---Stamps: Butterfly (Hero Arts Digi Winged Friends), Sentiment (Hero Arts CL342), Grass (Stampin' Up), Postcard (Michelle Underwood Digital Kit), Postmark (Stampabilities); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz); Other: Dimensional Adhesive (Therm O Web), String, Pearls (Recollections), Cardstock (Xerox)

I just love Lucy's lovely green card...I love her non-fussy style.
And you totally made this one your own, your muted but colorful background gives this simple design the wow-factor!
