Thinking of You Card Using Lacy Sunshine Eleanor - "Alice", CTMH Lucy Paper and Cricut Art Philosophy

Hi fellow crafters.  I hope everyone is having time to create.  I have been actually creating more cards this past week than I normally do.  I had a lot of end of the month challenges I needed to get created.  We have been getting the rain we need now in Southern CA.  I hope this doesn't mean more snow for other areas.

I created another Easel card to give to my sister Alice and her husband.  He will have to get use to the frilly, girly cards I send.  LOL!  I can't help myself.  I bought this one from Lacy Sunshine because her name was Alice.  It is Lacy Sunshine Eleanor - Alice.  I am sure it means Alice In Wonderland; but I had to buy it to create a card for my sister.  LOL!.  This one took me longer than normal; because it just didn't come together until I decided to add the butterflies.  I hope everyone isn't getting tired of all the butterflies I use.  I love them; and feel they really add a lot to the cards.

I think these colors are closer to the true colors of the card. Very soft.
