Happy B’day Nicole and Sneak Peek

Happy Friday everyone! Yeah! We made it through another week! I got some happy news yesterday, I was a pick of the Week over at Create with Connie and Mary! You can see the original post here and visit their blog here. I’m a big fan of their new badge, it has some of my favorite new stuff from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog which you can order from today at 2:00PM EST!! Today’s card is a birthday card for a friend of mine at work, Nicole. She is funny and quirky and a very nice person. I started off with a base of Soft Suede Card Stock. I ran a piece of Gumball Green* Card Stock through my Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The stamped frame, butterfly and rose are from the Papaya Collage Stamp Set**. The frame is stamped in Soft Suede, the butterfly in Primrose Petals* and I markered the rose with Primrose Petals* and Gumball Green* Stampin’ Write Markers.The greeting is from the Perfectly Penned Stamp Set and is also stamped in Primrose Petals* and adhered to the background which is from the Comfort Café Designer Series Paper**. All of the stamped items are adhered with Stampin Dimensionals. For the body of the butterfly I used two Basic Jewels Pearls. Nicole loved her card and I hope that you enjoyed it too. Thank you for stopping by and have a great Friday!
