I know it has been a long time....there is just so much to do this time of year. The weather has been beautiful here.....we could definitely use some rain though. It is just hard to find time to sit down and stamp.
This is a card I made for my sweet little niece, Lizzie.....she turned nine on Sunday......so we had a very nice time celebrating her birthday with her this weekend. I am entering this card in the Sketch Saturday Challenge for week #105. This was a very fun sketch to work with. I used this adorable Stampavie stamp from Penny Johnson....isn't it cute? I colored this little guy (or girl) with copics and cut it out with the oval Nestabilities. The outer oval is one of big scalloped ovals.
Here is a closeup of the butterfly....I added lots of stickles to it to make it sparkle.....
...and here is the image with the little bow and butterflies, which I also stickled all up! I used a lace edge punch from Martha Stewart for the bottom edge and added some pretty pink rhinestones.
This is the inside of the card....again the Martha punch and rhinestones. The sentiment is from Whipper Snapper and also colored with copics. I added some stickles to this again and put another little punched butterfly over top of the little birdie that is on the stamp....the butterfly just went better with this gorgeous designer paper.
And finally the card displayed.
