Thanks, Friend, Enjoy x2

I've two cards for today, as I didn't get many up last week.  They're both the same style, with a finishing difference.

I'd meant to do a 3 circle card with a raised cut out of the 3 circles popped over them, yet somehow when I got to the end of this first card I completely forgot about that and finished it off with butterflies.  Hence the second card.  I used a truer green for the second one as I'm submitting it to Simon Says Stamp's A Bit 'O Green challenge.

 I'm not very good at spacing my stamps for cards like this, so I used my Silouette SD to create a template.  I did it in green acetate, so it would be easier to see when I stamp inside the circles.  I also made the circles a little bit larger than the stamps, so I wouldn't stamp the edges by accident.  It works pretty well. :)

I've decided heading forward that I won't be adding a supplies list anymore, as it's a lot of work and I'm always forgetting to do it while I'm crafting.  If you're wondering what I used on a card, ask in the comments and I'll post an answer for you.

I like the second one with the raised part on top. Very pretty!

Pretty cards, the red butterfly is a great contrast to the green of the stamps. Definitely the 2nd is my favourite! Hi, from Slovenia.
