Floral Anniversary Card

I had this image to color, but I didn’t have the Copic colors to match the vision in my head. Luckily, I could make it work with colored pencils.

This card is a little different than most of my “circle main image” cards. This one, I cut the circle hole into the layer of purple, so the image is behind the purple instead of resting on top. The silver frame is on top of the purple.

Supplies: Stamps – Altenew, Paper Salon, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stardream Metallics Silver, Taylored Expressions Jelly Donut, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, pencils & blender – Prismacolor, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powders – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Ranger Silver Pearl.

You Give Me Butterflies Card

This is another sentiment from my new My Favorite Things sentiment set.

The butterflies are all punched from American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim scraps with a Martha Stewart punch (it punches 2 small and one large butterfly at once, if you want 3 butterflies).

I did think, “oh, my, what have I gotten myself into??” about halfway through the gluing process. I am in love with the final card.
