What just a little extra can do!

I have actually made a ton of cards lately. Some of them were for swaps and I was waiting for them to be received before I posted them. Others, I have just been too busy to post.  The cards I am posting here, I did early one morning before work. I haven't been sleeping well and use crafts to relax. 

So the thing about this card is that I used a sketch from PaperCrafts magazine to start. I made the card like this.....
It is a nice simple card. Actually, I did 2 of them like this. I used an old stamp for the words. the shapes were cut out with a nestabilities die and then the black piece was textured with a cuttlebug die.  Very nice but just needed a little something.  So I added this...
Isn't it amazing what that little bit does for the card! I love it now. Simple but wonderful!
Here is a version with red butterflies but I think I like the black the best.

And then here is one of the two I did with a horizontal layout. I did a total of 4 cards. I am trying not to have as much left over paper so I used the whole sheet of background paper. That paper came from Tuesday Morning. I don't remember the company.
