Here is my card for Sandy. I've combined it with Lyn's "Emboss Emboss" TLC. Because Sandy likes knitting, I used my cable knit EF. I chose to emboss with a pretty green EP and then sponged Bundled Sage over it. This card is a CASE of this beautiful butterfly card of Chris's. I stuck with the butterfly theme so I could use another one of my dollar store die cuts. And kept the layout because I found it very pleasing and a great use of my TLC BG. What a great time I had browsing through Chris's gallery. I hope you did too! I hope you'll join in the challenge to help send some hugs and smiles to Sandy and Chris!

Your double embossed piece turned out great - next time I will start with colored paper, too instead of white to cut out some of the extra sponging - plus it really gives a cleaner look to the overall piece! Great find on that butterfly - it looks real enough to take off in flight!

This is such a great case of Chris's lovely inspiration card. I really love the colors you used here. You have achieved wonderful texture here with your double embossing which is the perfect place for your delicate butterfly to land. What a wonderful inspiring sentiment this is too! Sandy will truly appreciate this beautiful card you made for her. ~Karen.
