Beau and Bashful

Happy Friday everyone! 
Finally had some time again for a card :-)
I used one of my newest stamps - Beau and Bashful-  from Whimsy's Wee Rubber Stamp collection! I was a little scared to color this image with my copics, but I think it turned out ok. Maybe it could have used some more shading...
I created a simple card, using a simple sketch. I didn't want to cover up the beautiful designer paper, so I kept it simple. I recently got this 6x6 paper pack from Whimsy Stamps - Hummingbird and Butterfly garden. Love it! So many pretty papers in this pack!

I added a little sentiment from one of Whimsy's Wee Stamp sets - Flower Fairies. Embellished with some twine and glitter, and then added a punched out butterfly, using designer paper from the same designer paper pack. 

Here is a photo of the inside. I usually keep the insides of cards pretty simple, just decorating with a matching strip of designer paper. For this card I had the perfect matching sentiment - from Whimsy's stamp set Birthday Greetings 2 - so I stamped it. I also stamped the image Beau and Bashful again, using some soft Lavender Lace ink.


Here is a complete list of products used:
Stamps: Beau and Bashful, Flower Fairies, Birthday Greetings 2 (all Whimsy Stamps)
Papers: Hummingbirds and Butterflies (Whimsy Stamps), Neenah, Stampin Up
Embellishments: eyelet, twine, sticky rhinestones
Tools: butterfly punch (MS), corner rounder, crop-a-dile, sewing machine

Copic markers used:
Ponies: B0000, B00, B02, V000, BV00, BV02, W2
Flowers: B00, V00, Y00
Basket: E40, E44
Grass: G12, YG11, YG63

Here is a closeup.
