I made a card!
This is the first time I've ever made a card I am pleased with! I hardly ever make cards as I am really, really bad at it. Anyway, after seeing all the gorgeous cards Helen makes I was inspired to try again as it's my DD's birthday coming up soon.
The background is from a Crafty Individuals backgrounds book and has lots of lovely grungy colours in it. I smooshed some brilliance inks onto my craft sheet, spritzed them with water then dipped a chipboard word and some grungepaper into the wet inks. I stamped a Studio 490 butterfly onto the grunge and cut them out, used some gems for the bodies then stuck them on around a Prima flower. I covered a K&Co "thinking of you on your birthday" ticket with rock candy crackle paint then swiped some cosmic shimmer mists over it when it was dry. I used rock candy stickles on the word, and coloured a crown (she is my princess, lol) with a gold krylon pen and then put some antique linen stickles over the top of that. It's all very sparkly and I like how it looks.
