Fabulous is what you are...

Hi there!
It's the weekend...yeah!  We have a busy weekend filled with fun things to do.  Today we will be attending a wedding.  My best friend's daughter is getting married!  It's hard to believe that she is all grown up and now having her special day.  And, she is marrying her dream boat fireman.  I can hardly wait to see her in her gorgeous wedding gown!
Anyways, I want to share with you a card I made for the Mod Squad Challenge
A closer view of the butterfly...
The theme is encouragement.  A friend had a loss in her family several months ago and I've been sending her cards.  She loves the color purple and butterflies.  So, I hope this card cheers her up.  For my card, I used die cuts from Reverse Confetti.  And, the butterfly is from MFT.  I used the smoosh technique with distress inks for the butterfly.  Sequins, thread, ribbon, and dots added for the final touch.
Ok, friends, that's all for now!  Whatever you have planned for the weekend I hope it's a great one!  Take care!

  1. Pretty card, colors and butterfly. I'm sure your friend will love and appreciate it, Maria.

  2. Such beautiful colors and layers! Love it!

  3. Maria, I hope you had the most magical day at the wedding! :o) And your card is as beautiful as its purpose. I had such a busy day and this is a lovely way to end it. Your friend is truly blessed to have you in her life... to continually send little notes like this (rather than only right after the loss) must mean the world to her. The butterfly is exquisite and I love the sentiment. Wonderfully designed, my kind and talented friend. May Sunday hold many blessings for you!

    Hugs and blessings,
