This is a sample I'm playing around with for an upcoming Occasions Mini swap. I have to use Full of Life, but I love how this greeting fits so nicely on the dotted lines in Live Your Dreams... so I put them together and am pretty happy with the results. I have a few more ideas to try to "finish" this card (one of them failed miserably, which changed the size of the Bashful Blue base a bit), so who knows what the end product will look like! I just love how pretty the flowers look cut out and popped up, and the butterfly is "flying" off the page, if you can't tell.

This card is beautiful, and I really like how the colors all coordinate - the orange butterfly with the floral panel and flower centers, the olive brads with the twill and flower stems, the blues - very nice design!
