You Are Appreciated – by Holly McMillen

You are appreciated more than you know. How often do we all feel that way? Quite often, I’m sure. Holly created a stunning card today to express that appreciation to a friend of hers. And on the surface this card would seem to be intricate. But just look at it from the perspective of putting it together. Easy peasy, as they say. Flowers, pearls and die cuts all come together in one beautiful cluster to create one FABULOUS note of appreciation. Take a look:



The simple curve, the gorgeous cluster and heartfelt sentiment – all working together beautifully.


A better look at the focal image cluster.

Note how Holly stamped onto the butterfly wings.
