Webster's Pages Papers plus 2 Cards

How fun is this! I started out with one of the sheets from the Post Card/Sweet Cherry
Paper pack (discontinued)( (they are 6x6) and then I cut the background from the back side of the same print for my Happy Birthday using the Lattice Pendant by Spellbinders. It was popped up with the Therm -O-Web. The Happy Birthday was stamped with JustRite's Just A Note stamp and the Square Borders and then cut out
using Labels One Nesties. I cut out the smallest Lattice Pendant and folded it in half to finish off the top of the Birthday Sentiment. Pearls and a silk bow were added on the Pendant for embellishments. Fun and easy and I think quite beautiful!!!

Another sheet from Webster's Paper Pack Post Cards/Sweet Cherry.
Isn't it fabulous? I pasted the paper onto a 6x6 Neenah Card Stock,
The I cut from another sheet of the same print, the Lattice Pendant. The edges were inked
for a better contrast.

I stamped the image from JustRite's new My Garden stamp set with Black
Memento Ink and cut the image out. I colored it with my Copic markers.
Then I stamped the border and cut it out the inside with the Peony Nestie
and the outside with the Scalloped Circle. I also colored the leaves with the
Copics. Everything was popped us with the Therm O Web Dimensionals

Four butterflies were cut out from the scraps of the back side of the paper that
the Pendant was cut from and then colored with the Copics as I felt
the contrast was needed. Pearls were added to the center of the flowers for
added interest.

Because I used two sheets of paper, I had this image that
I could cut out and put on the inside of the card. Doesn't
that class up the card? I am going to make an envelope,
now is when I wish I had some of the 12x12 paper. I think
I am going to have to get some of that for this very reason.

I sure had fun making these cards and they are so me!!!
