Thank you!

Hello! Thanks for all the great comments on my Magnolia-licious card below! You still have until the end of the week to comment! I'll choose a winner on Saturday and send you some XPress It blending card to try! My birthday was in August and I there were still some friends I owed Thank yous! Always late!
In August I had picked up this great simple butterfly stamp by Whipper Snapper! It was fun to color using two different colors of copics and blending them in the middle. I stamped a second, colored it and used a piece of Scor-tape to adhere the butterfly's body so the wings would lift. Then I covered it with the small glitter from Papertrey Ink. Really rather simple, but pretty, I think! I'm lovin' this texture folder from Sizzix that SU is selling. I like the deep imprint it gives. My card is 4.25" square.
While I was working on this card and on the Tilda in the Autumn leaves below I had a happy accident where two of the papers were laying together. I just had to make a card with them!!
It was like the old commercial when the chocolate falls into the peanut butter! Rememeber that one?
I'll show you the card tomorrow! Hope you can visit again!
Thanks for coming by today! Would love to read your comments, but please remember that it's the post below that is for the prize-Xpress it blending card! (and maybe a stamp or two!)
Have an excellent day!
Cheryl

Hi Cheryl, Very pretty card, I like that it's simple. I love the embossing folders too - a great way to turn plain cardstock something fabulous, just like you did here! Hope you're having a wonderful day, Nancy

What a pretty CAS card Cheryl! Love that embossed bg - this must have taken you all of 10 seconds to color in comparison to your Tilda's! LOL!! such an unusual card for you but gorgeous!!
