Thinking Of You

Here is a new card; it's always a good idea to have a few "Thinking of You" cards on hand.



This 5.5" X 5.5" blue Bazzil cardstock base was layered with some of my favorite paper: Bo Bunny's Calypso Dream: both sides of this two-sided paper was used for the background and the left side mat. Pulling out the colours from this design, I matted each element with red, blue and yellow Bazzil cardstock. 

Since my Martha Stewart butterfly punch was too large, I used her Monarch Butterflies Trim Punch on the blue and yellow cardstock and cut out individual butterflies from that for the embellishments. I folded each one and glued the bodies to the card for extra dimension.

My circular element is a paper doily by Wilton. I used sheer polka-dot ribbon to keep the focus on the image. Lastly, I used some Diamond Stickles on the wings for a touch of glitter.

Copics used on Tilda are as follows:

Skin:  E000, E00, E01
Hair:  E33, E37 and E47
Dress & stockings:  B91, B93, B95 and C2
Wings and Butterfly:  Y15 and Y17
