another Make it Monday - I just can't help myself!

I wasn't really planning on doing another MIM entry today, but what can I say? This idea started to formulate in my head, and I just had to do it! It turned out pretty close to what I had envisioned, and I'm really happy with it!


I stamped the Year of Flowers: Rose on Summer Sunrise and just selectively shaded a bit with Copics. I cut the frame from Blueberry Sky, using Mat Stack 5 and the opening with the Fillable Frame #7 die. The frame is popped up on the card base with 3D adhesive, and the vellum sentiment strip, embossed with a sentiment from Round & Round, is adhered to the back.  The card base is embossed with the woodgrain Impression Plate - I never ran my whole card base through with an IP before, but I love the effect! I used Ripe Avacado Bitty Box paper and the Banner Borders die.

The butterfly is the butterfly die on the bottom layer, with Polka Dot Basics 2 stamped on Spring Moss, and then vellum on the top layer with the Love Lives Here butterfly die and stamp. I added 3 little Creative Charms rhinestones, which were clear but I colored with Copics.



Thanks for looking!
