I must say this is a first for me being first in a blog hop! I haven't used Gina and Me set yet so I decided to make a card using it. The 2 girls, the butterfly, and the sentiment inside are all from the Unity Gina and Me stamp set. I colored the butterfly and the girls in with various sets of colored pencils and accented them both with Gelly Roll Metallic Silver and White pens. The card is Pink Paislee Wild Child 04 Double Sided Paper cut to A2 size (4 x 5.5 in). The butterflies I fussy cut from One Canoe Two Hazelwood Flock Double Sided Paper- both papers can be found at Paper Issues. The word "Smile" is from Jillibean Soup Hampton Art Word Veneer Words. I just added Scotch Permanent Adhesive to it to hold it down along with all the other stamped images and butterflies. I used Versa Fine Onyx Black pigment ink on all the stamps except the butterfly I used Ranger Tim Holtz Shaded Lilac Distress Ink. I also used a Tim Holtz platform the first time on this card, well here at home. I made more last week on vacation, but with Stampin' Up stamps. I'll share those cards in another post.
Close-up of inside. I just added a piece of the pink striped side so I can write a message before I give it to a friend this week. We've never taken a selfie together, but she just had surgery recently so I made this an a thinking of you card and we do always have fun just enjoying each other's company!
Go to Michelle's blog next and enjoy the rest of the hop! Please come back again this week to see the cards I made with Stampin' Up and feel free to become a follower so you can find my blog easier. Have a great day!
