Crumb Cake Silhouette

Hello Bloggers!

I was making some quick and simple cards then got bored with the simple cards and made this card after seeing some cards on Split Coast Stampers.

At the same time, I was helping my daughter added some purple ink on her ink pad and somehow the ink got on my card.  Not a problem! the butterflies covered the purple ink nicely.  I added the crochet trim that I made.  I should made more crochet trim.  I thought it added elegant to the card.

Your crochet trim looks so pretty and I am glad that your daughter stained your card... see what a beauty you produced in the bargain.
