Showcasing the Mini - My Friend

Hi everyone I thought it was about time that I concentrated my efforts on the mini catalogue as you only have until the end of April to order all the goodies that we have on offer in it & if you are really quick you could still get your hands the free goodies from Sale-a-brations but this will end on the 31st March.
The other day as I was tidy up my craft room (a VERY rare event as those who have been brave enough to venture in will tell you) I came across my old sketch book in which I will sketch card layouts that I happen to come across. In it I found one for a set called My Friend which happens to be in the Mini.
my friend
As we have only just got this set I’m thinking it must have been somewhere in the USA whilst on holiday there last year that I saw this card but unfortunately I cannot tell you where so if you did design it then please let me know so I can give you the credit you deserve.
From my rough sketch this is what I came up with :
The butterfly is made using a embosslit die called Beautiful Wings but prior to cutting it I used one of the stamps from the set to add to extra details. I have also added a bit of bling to the extra stamping I did on the side of the card by using my Quickie glue pen & some Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I’m not sure how much it shows up on the photos but in real life it really adds that extra bit of twinkle.
Here is another version this time using Wisteria Wonder & Crumb Cake.
I have also used my favourite wheel - Love blossom to add the extra stamping on the designer paper this time.
