Make It Monday #302 with Stephanie - Twine & Ribbon Wraps

A card for this week's MIM.
This is a little more layered than I usually make but I like how it turned out.  I used the twine behind my butterfly.  One of my favorite color combinations that I haven't used in awhile.

Inspired by All the Little Things #70

Blues and browns are not my go to color so this was a little hard for me.  I pulled out a bunch of smooshed backgrounds that looked like Autumn leaves and cut them using Lawn Fawn's Small Stitched Leaves.

Make It Monday #301 with Lizzie Matting with Glitter

Finally a card for MIM.  After having to mess with glitter several times, I finally came up with a card that I could post.  The frame I created was too large to have it framing the stamped piece because it didn't show enough pattern paper so,  I made a smaller one and popped it up.  I wasn't about to make another glitter piece.  I made mine by using score tape, but it was still a mess.

Lizzie's pretty card.
