After the background dried, I used my circle stencil randomly on the card, as well as stamping my "stitches" stamp along one edge. I love that stamp because I hate to sew!
The butterfly is a 3 dimensional sticker I picked up at a dollar store! I layered it with patterned paper, a die cut scalloped circle, and a clear acetate design piece.
The "happy" is made from stickers, and the black background piece is accented with Inka Gold (I just wipe it on with my finger). Some polka dot washi tape finishes the piece.
I'm also "happy" (sense a theme?) with the next card I made. It begins with the same background as the butterfly card.
The ribbon is actually seam binding, which you can get for next to nothing online. I bought some "ugly" colors one time that were on sale, then just inked the ribbon to the desired color. You can directly apply a dye ink pad on both sides of the ribbon to color it. The jewel is from a child's play ring which I have literally had forever, glad I saved it because it really works on this card! I rubbed a bit of black ink on it to age it a bit. Thanks as always for visiting!
