Hello Spring

Today's card was created for the latest Time Out Challenge. To create my card I started by die cutting a panel out of patterned paper from the Doodlebug Design Springtime 6x6 paper pad using a funky edge rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs. I popped the panel up off the card using some inexpensive fun foam I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I stamped the floral background onto some Copic-friendly cardstock using the Inkadinkado Garden Life stamp set and colored it using my alcohol markers. I die cut it down to a circle panel using a x-edge circle die from Gina Marie Designs and then matted it onto a piece of patterned paper from the same paper pad that I had cut down into a large scalloped circle using a die from Spellbinders. I stamped the butterfly from the same stamp set, colored it with my alcohol markers, fussy cut it out, and popped it up off of the circle panel using some foam dimensionals from Scrapbook Adhesives. I then stamped the girl image from the C.C. Designs Rainy Day Emma stamp set onto some Copic-friendly cardstock. I stamped the image again several times onto more of the patterned paper from the same paper pad and fussy cut them out and glued them onto the colored image. I fussy cut the entire image and edged it with my dual tip Memento tuxedo black marker. I popped her up off of the card using more foam dimensionals. I then stamped the sentiment from the Studio Calico stamp set onto some white cardstock and cut it down into a small sentiment strip and mounted it directly to the bottom of the focal panel. To complete my card I added some clear sequins in 6mm and 4mm from Pretty Pink Posh and then added some shimmer to the butterfly, flowers, and the girl's outfit using my Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen. I hope you like my card and I thank you for visiting my blog!
