Sky Dahlia

They say the third time is the charm, but this time the third time is the last time I'll bore you with this color combination with this stamp, at least for a long, long time LOL!!  I made a gift set of cards for my dear friend's birthday to match her birthday card made back in early July (Blackberry Sky) .  A tutorial for making the box can be found on Splitcoaststampers here (A2 Card Box).

My friend is an avid card and letter writer, so the cards had to be fairly flat for mailing.  I decided to make them without the sentiments attached, so she could choose to have no sentiment or one of three included in the gift set that she could easily attached with a spot of adhesive.

I used some repositional adhesive to show the card with the sentiment attached.  The little flags to the right were made using the Bitty Banner framelit, then cutting it in half and layering one ablve the other.  You can see in the picture below that the vertical strip of Blackberry card stock was embossed with the Fluttering TIEF.  I had to play around in photoshop in order to get the contrast so the butterflies were visible.

An older sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge was used for the card layout.  You can see the original sketch by following this link (SSSC 250).

Thanks for taking a look today!  I'd love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment!  I hope the remainder of your weekend is enjoyable!
