Happy Everything!


Since I had the Whimsical Flower Borders set still on my desk from yesterday's card I decided to use it again today. It's a miracle I could find it on my desk among all the other "stuff"! LOL!

I stamped it on a white panel, then colored with Tombow markers in colors to coordinate with the background paper I had chosen. The paper is from a mat stack called The Spring Matstack. I layered the stamped image a couple of times in shades of pink and green. I do like layers!

The butterfly stamp is called Multi-Pattern Butterfly . I colored on the rubber with my Tombow markers, then stamped it twice on a scrap of white cardstock. I cut out the butterflies, trimming the images closely and cutting off the antenna. Then I inked only the antenna of the butterfly and stamped on the decorative paper. I adhered the cut out butterflies over the stamped image. Then I used little jewels for their antenna. Isn't that cute?

The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set called Happy Everything Greetings . There are six stamps in that set, and they are a nice assortment and size which will fit most anywhere.

I really like this card, and I'm pleased with the end result. That doesn't always happen!

Thanks for stopping by.
