Belated Birthday Card :(

Hi! It was my Aunt's birthday last Sunday, and I forgot :(  I feel awful about it, and am still fretting about what to buy her, but at least I've made a card now.

I used a digistamp from All Dressed Up, and printed it onto patterned paper as well as the white cardstock. I cut out the dress, head band and butterflies from the patterned paper and layered it onto the image. I coloured the rest of the image with Promarkers, and added a little bit of glitter to the butterflies. I really really really don't like fussy cutting, as it is so faffy and I'm not very good at it, but I like the result. I hope my aunt will like it! :)






I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Cute card. I'm with you on fussy cutting. Absolutely can't stand it. I love that a lot of the new stamps have matching dies. I just wish they were a little more economical. Thank you for joining us at Come And Get It challenge. Bunny DT

Oh, I adore all those butterflies flying out of the hand of your darling girl! Reminds me of my daughters wedding where we released butterflies! I can't believe you printed this out on pattern paper and white and then did such a wonderful job of paper piecing! Amazing!! Thank you for sharing this at Just Us Girls!
