Bloomin' Lovely

Challenges

A Spoonful Of Sugar (104) - Cute & Girly
Papertake - Say It With Flowers
Stamp Something - Two Of Something
Stampin For The Weekend (39) - A Card To Make Someone Smile

This is a card for someone's mother-in-law that I've been asked to make so I hope it makes her smile when she gets it. As you can see it is cute, girly and has two butterflies and roses so I think it fits in with the above challenges ok.

The cute image is coloured with Promarkers (I am really getting into these now, just need a lot more practice). I have just used Glamour Dust on the 'paper' the flowers are wrapped in. The borders have been punched with a MS punch and ribbon added. I have 'iced' the buttons so that they sparkle and added roses to the top ones. The sentiment has been stamped and embossed and after layering I have added pearls to the corners. The sentiment reads 'sending you a little something wrapped in a whole lot of love'. I finished the card by adding a couple of stamped and embossed (with hologram EP for more sparkle) butterflies to the main image. They too have little pearls for bodies.
