My second card as a Guest Designer for CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge, is a birthday card I made for my sister. She will be celebrating a milestone birthday and will turn 60 on February 16th. She loves purple so I always try to add the color somewhere on the cards I make for her.
For this one, I attached a strip of Graphic 45's Secret Garden Patterned Paper to a Whisper White Thick card base. To be honest, I had planned to place a line of bakers twine down the center of the colored strip but forgot to add it before I attached everything. Instead, I drew a line using my Elegant Eggplant Stampin' Write Marker. It worked.
On a piece of Whisper White I stamped the sentiment from the Jar of Love stamp set using Elegant Eggplant. Next, I cut it out using the Mini Frame 4 from Taylored Expressions. The piece I used is actually the center of the frame. I also cut one in Elegant Eggplant and placed the frame over the center cut using Stampin' Dimensionals. The butterflies are punched from Elegant Eggplant using the Elegant Butterfly Punch. I attached them using Tombow Multipurpose Glue. Down the center of each butterfly, I placed some Rhinestone Basic Jewels. The sentiment on the lower right is from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.
Before I attached the frame and the butterflies, I spritzed them with some Radiant Rain Shimmering ICE Mist. It added just a wee bit of sparkle to the card.
