You are Fabulous

My first card today is the one I sent to Mia for the February Card Chain Challenge.  I chose the colour Option (Soft Navy, Blush Pink & Silver Grey), the Sketch Option and the Theme Option (Nature & Friendship).

I die cut the wicker panel from white card and attached it across the centre of the card and trimmed the card blank so it was the same width.  I stamped and embossed the butterfly and 'you' sentiment before die cutting them with their coordinating dies.  I placed the card into my MISTI and laid the butterfly and 'you' onto it so I could place the 'are fabulous' stamp before stamping and embossing it.  I coloured the butterfly with Promarkers before attaching it to across the wicker panel and attached 'you' on a thin foam pad.  To finish I highlighted the butterfly wings with a Wink of Stella.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     Card Making Magic 'The Best of Card Making Magic' butterfly stamp & Clearly Besotted 'Modern Calligraphy' stamp and coordinating dies
     Memory Box 'Wicker Panel' die
     Versafine Magestic blue ink
     Stampendous clear embossing powder
     Snippets of white card
     Wink of Stella

I am entering the following challenges:
     Allsorts - Anything with Wings     
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies - March challenge
     Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge - Use your Favourite Technique (mine is die cutting)

These are the lovely cards I received from Dee:
