A new Winner & Lattice & Violets

Well the 'Just Because' card wasn't claimed and so I drew another name.

The new winner is...........JD!

JD please e-mail me with your full name and mailing address, You will find my email address in my profile.

Now on to today's card.A while ago I bought a Silhouette craft cutter and there it sat. Yesterday I decided I needed to learn how to use it. I have a loooong way to go and it took all day but I did figure out how to make lattice in Robo Master with the help of a tutorial for Craft Robo which unfortunately was metric which really messed me up. How big is 2 cm in inches?
I decided to forget the metric system and try to figure out the measurements that I wanted in inches myself. My first effort was to to small but usable and this card shows my second effort. It still didn't turn out to be the size I wanted but I will get there. I have so much I want to try like doing the cutting for the dry embossing stencils.

I backed the lattice with a piece of DP from my stash and used green CS for the mat. I didn't like how much white showed on the center of the lattice so I cut a small frame from the green CS. The gold butterfly and salutation are peel off stickers.

Wednesday Sept. 9th. Edited to note: I did not send this post on Tuesday at 11:13pm I sent it today, Wednesday at about 2:30 pm!
