card for a friend

This card is for my friend Wanda! Today's challenge on Splitcoast was to be inspired by the gallery of an on-line friend. This is Wanda's card. Let me tell you the story about Wanda...

When I lived way up in Northern Alberta I participated in a swap in which Wanda was a part! Later she contacted me to buy supplies because she noticed I was a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. The really cool part was that she lived in Alberta too! A few months later we actually moved 10 hours South (still in Alberta). I knew that Wanda lived less than 30 min from where we were moving so it was exciting to have a REAL life person that I knew before we moved (because I didn't know anyone else here). We got to meet and have gotten together a few times to make cards! Thanks Wanda, for making my move a lot easier. You are such a sweet person and I always enjoy spending time with you.

The challenge the other day was to use VELLUM (which I often forget about) so I included 2 vellum butterflies on my card (can you see them?) I also wanted to use my new blossom bouquet punch.

Other details: Beatiful Wings embosslit, pretty in pink ribbon, 2 rows of piercing, brads, embossed background, clear rhinestones and 2 scallop edges.
