For You

Today's card is more on the whimsical side. Mostly I make more elegant styles, but looking at the glittery polka dot background paper and the stamped flowers, whimsical seemed to fit better than elegant.

Starting with white cardstock, a green layer was added, then a pinkish red layer, then the glittery polka dot paper. Three large flowers were stamped, punched and colored with a pink marker; two smaller flower punches were attached to each flower and a gold rhinestone brad was added to each one. Below the flowers is a white embossed piece; foliage was die cut in white cardstock, then inked with two different colors of green ink, then placed around the flowers. A three-looped raffia bow was put at the bottom of the flowers. The larger butterfly was stamped with VersaMark ink, sprinkled with light blue embossing powder, then heat embossed. The smaller butterfly was punched, then glittered. The sentiment was stamped, then die cut. All of the flowers, butterflies and sentiment were attached with pop dots.

Here is the card:
