A couple of cards...

...not me and my DH.  Actual cards.  Thank you to those of you who either laughed, giggled, or groaned.  At least a few of you got it! ;)  But I digress...

I've got 2 cards to show you tonight.  The first one uses the Everything Eleanor set sent from good old GB by one of my dearest blogging friends, Jacqueline, in exchange for some US only sets. :)  THANK YOU, JACQUELINE!  We really must do this again sometime! ;)

Here's the card~

Love the black background with white dots, so classy, and the light teal butterflies with the great black accents. The stitched and gathered ribbon is great too. Did I say I just like the whole card. Beautiful take on the sketch.

Beautiful cards. Love the butterflies and the ruffled ribbon one the best, I think it's the striking black dotty background which works so well. xx

I love your cards, especially the second one. I have become a follower here & on your Technique Tuesday blog. I may have to give this month's technique a try. Would it be possible for you to add the "every time you create a new post we get an email telling us" gadget? Just thought I would ask. Thanks for sharing your beautiful creations.
Hugs
