Silhouette Sentiments Card

Hi all!.
Last night after the disaster of a card, I tried to sleep, but couldn't so, I got back up and had another play with my craft stuff. By this stage, the newest ColourQ Challenge had gone up....
What a doozy.... I cringed when I saw more melon mambo with tangerine tango.... my dislike of pink and orange is quite strong! Anyway, I've been looking at different ways to use the hostess set, Silhouette Sentiments, as I feel it doesn't get used enough.... So, I went to SplitCoastStampers and had a look around. I found this card by Laurie, which just has an absolute Wow! factor to it.... 
So, I cased it.... fairly blatantly too.... 
Here is my CASE of Laurie's card - 
I love how this card turned out! I also have another card to show you, which I was asked to make by a friend. She needed a baby girl card, that included butterflies.... So, I Cased one of my cards from earlier, and remade it in pinks and purples. 
Anyway, that is all I have to show you on the card front. 
I want to leave this link here for you guys in case you were wondering what you can do to help the victims of the QLD flooding. I have donated a small amount, but every little bit counts I guess. So, head on over to the QLD government website, and donate as much as you can, to help the people of Queensland out....
