"Friends" card for CIC #110






Over 2 weeks, I didn't make a card. ha! Lots are going on here (mostly not good things :-( ) But I finally found the time to make a card! I got inspired by the photo at Cupcake inspirations challenge #110 ; flowers, bees, butterflies, grass, green, yellow, pink...so here is my card! The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn and luving it! I used TH's distress ink in 3 different colors around the sentiment. It's attached with dimentional glue dots. I also colored white CS in those color inks, and stamped flowers, then cut & attached to the stamped images on green with dots background paper. I luv the way those flowers colors came out, instead of using other coloring media. I used border punch to create Grass in two different colors, layered them, attached on the buttom of the flowers. Those bees are old CTMH. I paperpieced their bodies, attached them,and used vellum for the wings, and used stickles to give them a bit of shimmering. I also paperpieced the butterfly which came in a stamp set of flowers from Fiskars. I used sakura clear glaze pen for body & antenae of bees & butterfly, to give more definition. It's very hard to see in the pic. but they are there! :-) I used sakura white opaque gel pen for dots inside of the blue flowers. Those bottons are clear yellow & clear lime green with glitters in them. I used baker's twines in two different colors. A bit of gems & tiny pearls and the card was finished! :-)

How cute are those cupcakes. Your card has such happy colours. I can understand why you love stamps and ribbons. I think I'm a bit of an odd cardmaker as I don't stamp.
