To Cute to Pinch

     My daughter-in-law send pics of the kids in their greenery. I called my daughter to see if she had pics of the new baby in green. She said that she didn't have any green clothes for the baby. I got a pic a few minutes later of baby feet in green socks. I asked her if she had any green bows for the baby. She was able to take this pic.

Polka Birdie

     Once again I am combining challenges. I have the Sketch n Scrap card sketch and Stamp TV's MIUM challenge for the week which is flowers and dots.

Sketch #94

      For the background, I started by randomly sponging 4 colors, then used a bubble stencil over the sponging. I matched the colors of these inks with my Copics in order to color my stamped images.

Helen Keller Quote

     Whenever I make a sympathy card, I usually include this quote from Helen Keller. "What we have once enjoyed, we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us." 

The small card to the right shows the back of the inserted card.
 
     For this card I constructed a pocket using Lawn Fawn's "Stitched Hillside Borders". Using gold embossing powder, I heat embossed one large and two small butterflies. The two small butterflies act as a tab for the card that is inserted into the pocket. The large butterfly is pop dotted to the pocket.
     The background of the inserted card is stamped with a small flourish using Lovely Lavender ink. 

Materials List:
     Solid Paper: Gina K Designs - Fresh Asparagus
                                                      Wild Lilac
                                                      White Base Weight 
     Patterned Paper: Gina K Designs - Parisian Garden
     Ink: Gina K Designs - Lovely Lavender
             Momento - Tuxedo Black
     Stamps: Gina K Designs - Sending Love
                                                Country Roads 2
     Dies: Lawn Fawn - Stitched Hillside Borders
