CUTE AS A BUTTON MAY INSPIRATION

Hello There My Crafty Friends,
I would like to share a card I made with you all for the
Cute As A Button Showcase Blog

I love this sweet little girl with her bunny friend called Bunny Walk.
She looks like she is intent on where she is going. Grandma's house maybe? :)
...For This Card - Step By Step...
  White cardstock for the card base.
Used the distress ink pad on a piece of brown cardstock.
Cut a piece of ribbon and glued it onto the brown cardstock, ends in back.
Taped the brown cardstock onto the card.
Cut the image and a piece of pink cardstock out with oval frame dies.
Used the paper crimper on the pink frame, then taped the image to it.
Taped both onto the center of the card.
Using stamens for the center of the flowers, I put pink/white and blue/white together.
Glued the stamen ends to the back of the flowers, then glued the flowers on the card.
 Next I glued the flourishes dies from beneath the flowers.
Then glued the butterfly and hearts onto the card.

SCRAPY LAND CHALLENGE #90

Hello My Crafty Friends,
I want to let you all know that a new challenge starts today at Scrapy Land
The theme is 'Anything Goes' using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.
 
...Here's what I made for this challenge...
I love the wolf die and this time I left the moon on there. :)
I love feathers too and think they go well together.
I wanted to make a nighttime scene.
I used a brown paper bag to cut out the tree and one of the feathers. 
You may be able to see a little bit of the red letters on the feather...adds more character, lol.
 ...For This Card - Step By Step... 
Grey cardstock for the card base.
 Cut the cardstock the size I wanted to make my card.
Then folded each side to meet together in the center.
Went over the front of the card with distress ink.
Ran the card through the machine to emboss it.
Used distress ink on the doily die cut then cut it in half.
Taped a piece of the doily on each side of the card. 
Glued the tree on the right side of the card.
Cut out the wolf die cut in grey and white cardstock.
Cut a piece of yellow cardstock to fit behind the moon outline, glued it on.
Then glued the white wolf on back of the grey one.
Cut pop-dots in half and put on the back of the wolf, attached the wolf to the card.
Glued three feathers together, then tied a piece of twine around them.
Taped the feathers to the card.
Then used the white gel pen to make stars.
You can see the embossing on the inside and it shows on the back as well.

White cardstock for the card base.
Cut a piece of patterned paper to fit the center of the card, then taped it on.
Cut the image out, went around it with distress ink, then taped it to the center of card.
I printed out extra butterflies and the flower in her hair, so fussy cut them out.

I added two butterflies to the butterfly that is on the umbrella, as I wanted it raised farther.

I had made my own rolled flowers, so glued three of them on.
 ...For the flowers I made...
With a scrap piece of paper, I cut out a circle 'not perfect for sure', lol.
Then cut out a swirl (I guess you would call it that) in the circle.
Starting from the beginning/outer part, roll it and glue it to the end of the roll.
The swirl cut doesn't need to be straight, unless you want it to.
Then I use a pair of tweezers and curl over the top part of the petals.
