Canvas Butterfly Birthday

Today's card is for one of my girlfriends. Her birthday was yesterday and to celebrate we went to the Rick Springfield concert this past weekend. We even dragged our husbands along. Here we are living the 80's dream, heading off to dinner and the concert. I've never been a big Rick Springfield fan but it was a very fun night.

Ok, on to the card. I used one of the new 6x6 pads from My Mind's Eye (Follow Your Heart - Be Amazing) for the sentiment panel, mat and paper flower. I added a doily, a die cut leaf and a canvas butterfly. I die cut the butterfly using canvas and the A Muse Studio butterfly die and then I stamped with the ColorBox Chalk dark brown ink and the musical note background stamp from Unity. I also sponged a little Walnut Stain Distress Ink on the butterfly and then added a pearl pin to the center. 

Thanks so much for stopping. I hope you're having a terrific Tuesday. Happy Stamping!

Welcome, Little One

Sorry for my lack of posts the last couple of weeks. I was having a bit of a creative slump but I think I'm over it now. I made a couple of cards this past weekend and I put this one together this morning before work. I used papers from My Mind's Eye 6x6 Lost and Found Breeze collection. Along with some Rustic Cream cardstock from Papertrey Ink. The die cut is Papertrey Ink Mat Stack 3, the sentiment is from A Muse Studio, and the onesie image is from There She Goes.

I inked the edges of the die cut with Ranger Distress Walnut Stain and the onesies and sentiment are stamped with Colorbox Chalk inks. For the finishing touches I added a ribbon bow with Hug Snug Seam binding and a large button tied on with May Arts burlap twine.

Thanks so much for stopping. I hope your week is off to a good start. Happy Stamping!
