Layers of Color Forever Friends Blog Hop

Good Morning papercrafters.  Today I bring to you a card I have created for a very special friend.

I have been so very blessed since joining the Layers of Color Design Team.  Not only does this company have a very special owner, Laura, but also some very special designers.  Not just for their papercrafting skills, but because of their love for Christ and love for their sisters in Christ.  From the very start of joining this wonderful team, I fell in love with Grace.  So today I am a little sad to say that Grace will be leaving us as a featured designer at Layers of Color.  But I am so very happy that she will be staying on as a "Friend of Layers of Color" and joining us when she can for special events.  I have enjoyed getting to know you Grace and hope that you will stay in close contact with us!
 This one is on the way to you via snail mail!

Inside sentiment says "Life is special with friends like you".
You can check out Grace's beautiful Layers of Color projects in her gallery HERE and her blog HERE .
As a tribute to our friend Grace, some of the other designers have also designed some cards just for Grace.  I hope you will take a minute to check them out.  

Project details :
Stamps : Layers of Color "Wild Grass Frame" cling art stamp, and "Flutterescent" clear art stamp set.
You can shop for Layers of Color at
Ink : Tsukineko VersaMagic "Perfect Plumeria" and Hint of Pesto.  I used a white chalk pencil to add highlight over the green ink.
Spellbinders Labels #16
border punch - Martha Stewart
Jewels - Memory Box

Have a blessed day!

Oh my...this card is truly beautiful!.... Where do I start!...the colors are so rich and elegant, the sparkle on this beautiful 3-d butterfly makes it come alive. The frame on frame technique you used adds such interest and depth. (and by the way...I will have to case that ! Hee-hee. ;D ). Just a beautiful project, Melisa. Hugs!
