Vanessa *Day 2*

Here is our next card by Vanessa:Okay, Vanessa's butterflies make my heart skip a beat!! Aren't they gorgeous?! Her coloring is beautiful and I love how she chose to use such a rich color of blue. The soft distressed text in the background is an elegant touch. Vanessa's overall grid design is very eye-catching as well. Finally, Vanessa always remembers the details, like the touch of twine and pretty button on this card.
Here is my take:See you tomorrow, my friends! Thanks for your sweet comments!
