Saw the sketch by Cindy L. and knew I had to give it a try...
but first here are a few pics from this weekend!

So we had Charlie (Bill's brother) and his girls over night on Saturday, we went out for dinner and have a wonderful time and on Sunday we drove out to Camp 18 (OREGON)  again only this time for breakfast! Everyone loved it! Thanks for coming to see us... and I hope to see you again soon!

and here's my card for FMS174

I have a Natural White Cardstock, along with Something Borrowed DSP. I used my Butterflies Thinlits on Gold Foil Sheets, with Linen Thread behind the thinlit. I also added my new favorite Jute ribbon as my diagonal element and added the stunning new Lovely Amazing You photopolymer sentiment named after the set, in Chocolate Chip ink! Last but not least I had to throw some pearls in... the dsp is too pretty not to have some bling (aside from the Gold Foil Butterfly).

Here is a close up of the hammering technique I did on my butterflies thinlits!

Well I hope you've enjoyed my card today... and thanks again Cindy L for a great sketch!

Thanks for stoppin' by


  1. This is beautiful! The gold butterfly with the thread behind is a real standout! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

    1. Thank you Karren, I had so much fun making the card! :) Eva

  2. Gorgeous! I love the combination of jute with the gold, and your sentiment placement is wonderful. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

    1. Awe thanks Kim! This was one of the super fun sketches and I loved every minute making this card!

  3. Looks like a fun dinner trip. I'll have to check it out the next time I'm up in the Northern part of the state. I hadn't realized you were an Oregonian too! Beautiful card too Miss Eva. I haven't seen much of the jute yet. Looks lovely and adds a nice bit of texture.

    1. Jean, I am an Oregonian!!! Camp 18 is a fav... it's a must place to visit, eat and shop! Thanks for your thoughtful words!!!
