This is for Pam (YorkieMoma). She was the recipient of the Tea Potters last week. I waited until she received the card to post this. I talked with her today and she wanted me to tell everyone how MUCH she appreciated the cards she has received and that she still is not able to create or even spend time on the computer. She said she was so surprised when the cards started to come in and they were such a bright spot in her day. BIG thank you's to everyone who sent her a card!
I myself, have been out of commission with a serious case of Shingles (actually I don't think there is a case of them that doesn't feel serious to anyone who has had them).
This card makes the two or more die cuts that was part of the challenge but it is not as layered as most of the beauties in Pam's gallery.
The "Sending" die was a gift from a new friend in England. I cut it twice and glued together for dimension. I cut the main die cut ( the one swirly one) at die club so I apologize, I do not have a name for you. The skinny ribbon like die-cut with the holes in it were the last addition. It needed "something". After dragging out several dies, and cutting pieces of this one and that, I finally slept on it and got up the next morning and added this piece and the tiny Memory Box butterfly.

There you are!! I've missed you my friend! I love this die cut out and the large sending is really wonderful! Love your neutral colors and just enough difference to give depth and texture! Beautiful Peggy!

Peggy, this soft beauty just mesmerizes me - Love the triple die cut outs on the fronts and your "Sending" using the same BG color that peeks through from behind your card front - the border at the top gives it an extra strip of elegance, and the BOWS were a stroke of genius!! Sure hope you are feeling better soon! !!!!!
