Greetings everyone!! I'm popping in today with another submission into the Some Odd Girl Guest Designer contest. Today I've inked up Gwen (so cute!) onto a circle cut with my nesties. I colored her with my Copics and have paper pieced her dress. (can you tell how much I LOVE paper piecing these gorgeous girls?!?) I embellished her dress with two metallic self-adhesive pearls. I stamped her matching sentiment "Sweetest Wishes" in the circle with her. I then set her aside and worked on my card layers.
My cardbase is SU! textured cardstock from an old, OLD Simply Scrappin' kit. I layered using papers from my scrap bin so I know that some of them are Making Memories and Recollections brand but not sure of all of them! LOL! I kept my background basic and crisp. I made the butterfly embellishments using a Martha Stewart punch. I punched five butterflies out of each of my designer papers - green, blue gingham and text lined paper. I used my Glossy Accents and adhered the five butterflies together and then fluffed up their wings to give them added dimension. I adhered them to my card and fluffed them up even more.
I tied an extra fluffy, double loop bow as a punch of color and then added Gwen on 3-D foam adhesive.
