Butterfly Wish Card

We had lots and lots of snow mixed with some ice this past week.  More is expected Tuesday night; but by the end of the week, we are supposed to be seeing temperatures in the 50s.  With the weather keeping me indoors, I spent some time doing a lot of fussy cutting for future projects.

My card today was made for a relative's January birthday.  The pattern papers are all from Prima's Nature Garden line.  I started with a salmon-colored card base that I inked quite a bit with Distress Inks to tone the color down.  The chipboard frame was painted with green crackle paint, the edges inked with tea dye Distress Ink and then covered with a coat of Stickles.  Butterflies and lace edge border were made with Martha Stewart punches.  The pearl/rhinestone swirl is Prima.  The flower is from Michaels and highlighted with Stickles.  I stamped the word wish onto a Heidi Swapp label.

The image of the little fairy was also highlighted with Stickles.  I love these shabby papers designed by Jodie Lee Patterson for Prima.  I was fortunate to get an autographed pad of these 6x6 papers from her through her etsy shop.

Well, that's it for me today.  Need to get dinner started.  Wishing you a wonderful week!  Thanks so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments.
