Finishing Up Some Cards

My friends and I had another crafty playdate on Friday. Yay! I made a couple of cards there, but before I share those, I needed to work on finishing up the cards I started at the last crafty playdate we had. So, I sat myself down yesterday and got to work.
 Most of this card was done, but I hadn't decided on a sentiment. I ended up using one from an older Papertrey Ink set called Floral Frenzy. I was inspired by a card created by Kay Miller waaaaay back in January here. I used My Mind's Eye Notable 6x6 pad for the papers. The stamped image is Floral Frenzy as well stamped in Sunset ink (Close To My Heart). The cardstock is American Crafts and the butterfly is from a package I picked up at Michaels. Love those little wooden butterflies!

While at the last playdate, I cut those hexagons from Pebbles Family Ties 6x6 pad and put them on the circle piece. Then I tried to find a doily cut from a Cricut cartridge because I forgot to bring my doilies. I didn't get one cut that was the right size and I got tired of trying. I was inspired by this card here. Loved the quilted feel of the card. For a little textural interest I decided to use some cork that I re-discovered was in my stash. I also added a couple of stick pins from Making Memories years ago(Chloe I think was the line). The Just Because is from Papertrey Ink's Mixed Messages. The tag was also in my stash from years ago, along with the jute (sometimes it's a good thing when you hoard save stuff). I added the stitching with a white gel pen.

I was pretty dang productive that day! Yay!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Since there is green in my cards, I'm covered in the pinch department, right?
