Little Things


The theme for the challenge at Creative Inspirations Paint is "Little Things". When I first saw this, I thought of, well.....little things (objects). Then, I thought, no........how about the "little things" in life that make me happy! I mean like you go to the mall and find a parking space right in front of the store you need to go into! Or.......how about getting a GOOD haircut. See what I mean. To me, another "little thing" is telling someone "thanks". How often do you receive a "thank you" card anymore? I created this card for a friend just to say "thanks so much" for being my friend.

Now you're going to have to just trust me on this one, but this is really pretty and shiny in real life! I used Pretty in Pink and Lovely Lilac card stock and the camera just did not do those colors justice at all!!! The little butterflies were made using the Beautiful Wings die and the sentiment is from Watercolor Trio. On the butterflies I used the colors Amethyst and Tutu Pink by Creative Inspirations Paint and they just shimmer and shine! The rectangle was made using SU punches.

Thanks for stopping by...............

This is such a lovely card, the colors are perfect together. Shimmer and shine is the worst to try and photo, but I trust you, that it adds that accent of shine, it is lovely anyway.

Great post, Lynn! I makes you think about how often we all overlook the things that matter, like true friendships. Love the card, the pink and lilac look so beautiful together! :)

I like how you embossed the butterflies and added the pearls.

I also have a hard time photographing that purple color. It always looks blue in the picture.
