We have actually had a few days this week, that you didn't mind going outside. The sun was out, warmer, the breeze is still cold but no more snow.  Went to a birthday party tonight for a friend of mine and took this card.  Wish I had checked the pictures that I took a little closer, because they didn't seem to be in focus.
Just checked and the camera is on the setting I usually use, but I did drop it a few weeks ago, so maybe there was some damage or maybe I wasn't holding it very steady.  I always seem to working on something I should have done last week.

The image of the pretty butterflies is from Priscilla Styles, CDAC.  I printed them and then embossed them in gold on Transparency Film. Cut around them and then placed coloured card stock underneath.  I added some lace, some pearls and a sentiment from my stash to the lower part of the card. An popped up the flower that was printed on the top of the DP.  The designer cardstock was all from DCWV.

Had fun at the party with friends I had not seen for quite some time.  The family did all the cooking a beautiful prime rib dinner with all the trimmings and way too much desert!
