Butterfly Thoughts

Today's card was inspired in part by the colours at Just Add Ink this week and also last week's challenge of using a Fancy Fold. I came across this fold - aptly called a "Gap " card and whilst it's name reminded me of the year often taken off by students between finishing at School and beginning at University…the style was one that I hoped would suit this otherwise very cleans and simple sympathy card for a friend.

 Yes, quite literally there is a GAP in the front of the card and in this case it is the navy and pink butterfly that holds it all together. A row of pink sequins and of pearls, a little draping gold cord and this clean, simple and full of bling card is ready to post.

Card stock: Whisper White (thick and usual),
Inks: Not Quite Navy, Pink Pirouette, Encore Gold (retired)
Stamps: A Dozen Thoughts, Floral Wings
Accessories: Metallic Sequins, Gold Cording Trim, Pink sequin trim, Basic Pearls

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you are inspired to try a different folding card again this week :-)

Happy stamping until next time,
