A Commission

Today's cards are ones I was asked to make by a friend whose two daughters-in-law celebrated their 40th birthdays in December so it's OK to post them now.  She said to do both cards the same but I felt happier doing different cards albeit along similar lines.

I finished off by making a plain box for each card using the Martha Stewart Scoreboard and decorated with XCut punch butterflies.
