Michelle *Day 3*

Check out this cheery tag by Michelle:This tag is loaded with gorgeous torn paper effects--from the purple on the bottom to the flower! I love the colors of this card. They are sure to make anyone smile. The butterfly is colored to perfection! And finally, the glitter on the flower and stem add that extra punch and finishing touch!


Here is my take:
Oh, and I hope you get a chance to check out the Hero Arts BLOG today. I have a card posted and a photo tutorial! :) Here's a little peek at the card:Thanks again for all of your comments and encouragement, my friends!

I LOVE both of these tags!!!! You are a crafty maniac!

I adore those pearl butterfly centers too!

Pat Castillo said...

Very nice cards--again! :)

Quick question--I just saw the blog and the step-by-step instructions you gave (thanks for that!) and I was wondering if the paper "crinkled" after spritzing it w/the Perfect Pearls? I love that look but I'm too lazy to have to iron out the wrinkles on paper...does it depend on the cardstock used?

Thanks again for all the great ideas!

Wow! Jill, your card is amazing! Love those colors!

Michelle said...

Jill your card it AWESOME! (in my best sing songy voice--why don't we have music notes on our keyboards?) I love it and I am sure you have made my mother and my Aunt's extremely happy. It's their favorite. In fact, it went to my mom when she was sick!

I love yours and I am intrigued by that mirror on the bottom and where did you get those music notes?? Please do share! :) It's fabulous (singing again--so glad you can't hear me! ;) )

I can't wait to get to the Hero Blog to see what kind of goodness you cooked up for today. You have been one AWESOME hostess...the hostess with mostest! :)
