Garden Whimsy

So its that time again....time for our monthly downline meeting with my wonderful upline Angie and my sideline Melody and this is my swap card. If you think you might be interested in becoming a demo just email me and you can join us at our meeting to see what its all about. We can answer any questions you might have and join in on the fun!! Back to the card......when I started making the card I really had no idea where I was going with it or what I wanted to do. So I started with some colors. I thought I would try some Groovy Guava since I never use it and its going to be retiring soon (Contact me to order your paper before its too late). So then I opened up one of my drawers to find some more paper and on top was this sage shadow. Ive always like the color, but again, never use it. I thought they went very well together. So now I just needed one more color to off set it. I found my barely banana in the drawer with the sage shadow....I had just enough. So then I was thinking of what stamp I could use and I love this set! Its just so cute so I opted for the big butterfly from it... then it all just kind of came together. I used the whimsy wheel on the groovy guava and stamped the butterfly in sage shadow ink. I then used my 2way glue pen and added dazzling diamonds glitter. I dyed some whisper white ribbon with my sage shadow ink because I didnt have any ribbon on hand to match and added some brads at that bottom. I used my ticket corenr punch on the butterfly layers and thats it... it was a quick and cute card to put together. In the end I am very pleased with how it came out.
