Pink & Orange Garden Whimsy

When I saw this set in the new catalog, I knew that I just had to get it along with the matching wheel. I loooooooooooooooooooove these butterflies. This is also one of my very favorite color combinations and I realized that I really need to order some Pumpkin Pie cardstock since I'm almost out. I wish I would have realized that last week because I placed a small order and could have definitely added the cs to it. Now, I think I might need to place another small order to get the cs :-)

The card base is Pumpkin Pie and I wheeled the Jumbo Whimsy wheel on that in Rose Red. I stamped the butterflies in Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, and Regal Rose on Whisper White. I then highlighted some of the circles and lines with my clear Copic Spica glitter pen. This is matted on Regal Rose and Rose Red and attached to the front of the card. I stamped the smaller butterfly in Regal Rose, highlighted it with the glitter pen, and then cut it out and mounted it on a Whisper White circle with a dimensional. This is attached to a punched out scalloped circle of Rose Red and attached to the card with dimensionals. I poked holes and added 3 Fire circle brads and tah dah--I'm done! I wanted to use the sentiment but it didn't fit on the card so I decided to stamp a matching envelope. I think I'm gonna play with this set and color combo a little more today.

The second card was created by my 5 yo. I generally make birthday cards for them to give to their friends and he's going to a party next weekend. He has been dying to make a card and had me stamp the images for him then he colored them in with crayons and wanted to use glitter glue. I swear, he pulled out every bottle of Stickles and Liquid Pearls that I own but I reigned him in a little :-) He's very proud of his creation and can't wait to give Anya her birthday card.
