May Card Chain Challenge

Every month, Deborah organizes a card exchange.  We can make a card using her colors, a sketch, or a theme.  I received my cards today from Patty, and I wanted to share both these lovelies with you.  First the card using Deborah's colors.  There are so many sweet details on this, the ribbon used as the butterfly's body, her soft shading of the music paper, even the little antennae are sparkled at the very tips!

And look at this beauty she also sent me!  She knows how much I love lilacs, and especially this one she created earlier, so I am thrilled to have this masterpiece!
Isn't it gorgeous?   Even better in person, there are 3 layers of lilac petals, in beautiful shades of lavendars, purples, and blues.  Here is her Flickr post where she explains how she created this beauty.  While you're there, look through her photostream; she has made so many unique cards! 

Thank you, Patty, I will treasure both of these!
