I had sooooo much fun creating this card. Something about this card just screams summer and fun to me! The image is from Miami Doodles and I absolutely love it! TI colored the image with Promarkers with summery colors. Then I colored the image with a clearstar gelly roll pen to add a glittery sparkle. I punched the image out with a scalloped oval punch from Stampin Up!
The green card base is textured cardstock that I have had for over a year. It came in a tablet and I realized after I got it, that the textured cardstock isn't good for punching and things, so I use it for card bases, to try and use it up.
I also used the clearstar gelly roll pen to add some sparkle to the image, butterflies and background paper.
For the card layout, I used the sketch at Cute Card Thursday. This sketch was so much fun to work with. I'm tempted to make a second card using this sketch because I love the layout.
The background papers for the card are from my stash. I just bought the bling yesterday at Michael's, especially to finish this card. I used an opaque white pen from Inksentials, to add the faux stitching. The butterfly paper was punched out with the Stampin Up scalloped oval punch.
