A Little Bit of Sunshine

Spring Is In The Air

Or it was the day I made the card, here in the Midlands it's rather wet and windy today.

I was browsing the blogs I follow the other day and found a card similar to this one and just new it was what I wanted to do for a friend of mine. Again it is a mixture of old and new, the ribbon is very old as is the embossing folder but it's one I keep using and the stamp sets are bang up to date.  I used the thumping technique for the butterfly and for the leaves I stamped on the card before embossing then stamped again on a scrap piece of card stock before (yes Peg) fussy cutting them out and slightly overlapped on the original stamping.  Loved the effect.  

The materials used are:
Ink: Crushed Curry, Old Olive, So Saffron
Markers: Old Olive
Card stock: Old OliveWhisper White
Stamps: Butterfly Basics, Grateful Bunch
Embossing folders: Perfect Polka Dots (retired)
Punches: Bitty Butterfly, Blossom Bunch
DSP: DSP Stack Brights (retired)
Ribbon: Taffeta So Saffron (retired)
Accessories: Basic Pearls

Will be back again soon with more cards

Love Annette x
