I ♥ Aqua and Pink...

I just can't get enough of the 2 together... they just look so pretty!!! A while back I made a quilt (it's still unbacked due to my new "hobby" taking over my whole existence) and these were the main colours.  Making all these cards reminds me that I ought to finish it.
Anyway - this is the other "Thank You" card for my sister - and another extract from her dissertation!  Does this extract make it any easier to guess the subject ;)  Didn't think so.

Supplies: Stamp and Ink (on butterflies) - Hero Arts; PP - Zoe Pearn Digital (here); Punch -Martha Stewart; Nesties - Labels 1; Sewing Machine; thread.

Tips: I sponged the pool ink onto the sentiment using a Hero Arts Silky Sponge.  I punched the butterflies out of some paper scraps that had been stamped with the Hero Arts Antique Flower stamp.  I lined it up carefully so the pattern was mirrored.

Love both your cards that you made for your sister.......is her dissertation on music?? I didn't have a clue from the first excerpt, but after looking at this one, that's my guess and I'm sticking with it!! Love the aqua and pink together, too!! Hugs!
