...do my mom and sister really like this card?

I mean sure, it's got some beautiful Waltzingmouse and Hero Arts stamps on it, but what else?

{sigh}...I dunno. I've been wondering about this for awhile, and I still don't understand it. I'm just not a big fan of this card, I guess. Though I do like the color combo, from Moxie Fab World. :) I really did fit all the pinks in there - you probably can't tell, but those two pink pearls on the butterfly? Well, they're different shades. I'm not kidding.


I'm not!

Anyways, this is also for the Walzingmouse CASE challenge - my card was inspired by Laurie. I kinda went with the sketch of her card, but I was really taken with Laurie's use of vellum - I can't even remember the last time I pulled this stuff out before this card!

Have an awesome weekend and thanks for popping in! :)
