Doesn't it bug you when you have an idea for a card clear in your head and when you make it, it turns out to be nothing like your mental picture? That's what happened with this one - in my mind's eye, the butterfly motif was smaller, and sat more neatly over the doyley, the shades of green matched more exactly and the whole thing looked more elegant and pulled together. I guess that's what you get for lying awake planning cards in the middle of the night when you should be sleeping!
The theme at CD Sundays this week is Something old, Something new and I've used some of my very oldest and newest items of stash in it. First the CD the butterfly and dragonfly came from is Carol Ann's Studio CD-17, Dragonflies, which was one of the first CDs I ever bought. The lilac pearlescent card I've used for the card blank is about 10 years old, the darker purple card I used for matting is from a box I bought last week, and the yellow card mottled with pink and peach streaks (which don't show up clearly in the photo) was from some I bought on the day before my father's funeral (it's funny the things we remember about times like that!) 15 years ago. But the embossing folder I used to add the script to it with is so new I hadn't even opened the packet! The dragonfly brad is several years old but the doyley and buttons are both very new. And after sticking the buttons to the card, I noticed that the pink one has the word "FAT" on it. Charming!
