Second Saturday Post!!

I have a pile of cards here on my desk to share....so I decided to post again today and share a few more!! This card features the oval piece that is cut out of the Cuttlebug Embossing Plus Elegant Ellipse folder which I used on this post. The oval is very pretty itself...but for this card I wanted to focus on the cool pricking border it has. I inked the edge lightly with Elegant Eggplant ink and popped a gorgeous pre-colored Corner Peony from Fred She Said Designs up with foam tape.

Other goodies on this card would be Lasting Impressions mini brads, Martha Stewart border punch, SU! ribbon and a silver sticker sentiment by Stampendous!


And here is another card featuring a bunch of Fred She Said goodness! The flowers and leaves are pre-colored...probably from two different sets even....since they came from my handy dandy odds-n-ends bin! Little Miss Bitty I colored with my Copic Markers and popped her with foam tape over the Monarch Butterfly image that I had printed on blue vellum. Once the butterfly image was dry, I accented it with a Sky Blue Copic Spica Glitter Pen and blended it with my finger, so my wings are sheer and shimmery! I layered the butterfly over another....so I could pop some foam tape under the wing edges without it showing. The effect is that the wings are sheer and fluttery! Edited to add: pre-colored leaves from Faux Foldy Flower Set

Other details on this card: Archiver's Scallop Circle Panel and Stampendous sentiment. I used faux stitching and I placed my flowers off the edge of the card for a different effect! Hope she makes you grin!
