It has been a long time since I did anything like this with cards, to the Papertrey Ink Make-it-Monday this week was a nice reminder. At first I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this challenge so to begin with I followed Danielle's example. Her card was lovely and it gave me an excuse to use the PTI Garden Gild mini kit which I find hard to put down.
After this card a ventured a bit with some other colors and shapes. Below I took the small butterfly from the Life is Beautiful stamp set and used it to scatter shapes on the front of my card. Then I used a pearl pen to add some texture to the inside.
