My friend Meg and her daughter went to Poland for their Missionary trip.  I had mentioned a few weeks before the trip if she had room in her suitcase would she pick me up a Polish Pottery Spoon Rest.  Mine broke several months ago...I almost cried when it happened, I knew there was no replacing it=(  When I found out Meg was going, I asked.  Nothing was ever mentioned about it again, except the night before her flight she made a fb post about how was she going to get her carry on from 50lbs to 15lbs.  I thought, gosh, there's no way I could ask her or remind her to get that spoon rest for me.  Well, she got back a day or two before my birthday and told me she got my spoon rest!  I was so surprised.  I haven't gotten it yet, but as you can see I am SO excited to receive it, I made a thank-you card for her before I got it, lol=)
For my card I used Card Patterns 127.  I stamped Wonderful Wings (retired) on Crumb Cake Cardstock with Momento Ink, coloring with Copics.  I added Smooch to the body and just a tad on the wings then covered the whole thing in Crystal Lacquer.  BG Out of Print and Marvvy Punch (blue) to make the flowers, Crystal Lacquer and Glamour Dust on the edges and a Black Rhinestone in the middle of the flower.  I made the greenery from the Cricut Storybook Cartridge, then sponged it with Old Olive and Always Artichoke.  Crumb Cake run through the CB and sponged with Crumb Cake.  Lacy Circle Nestie cut out in Pumpkin Pie and sponged with Pumpkin Pie.  Maya Road Orange Ribbon then SU Victoria Trim on top.  BG solid black panel on top of a Crumb Cake base sponged with Crumb Cake.  
Thank-you for stopping by!


  1. This is stunning - Love the sparkly glitter on the wings of the butterfly. Your colors compliment each other so beautifully. I would have never thought to use this combo.

    What a great friend to be able to replace something that meant so much to you.

  2. What a beautiful card. Thanks for playing with us at Card Patterns this week.
