COF July Challenge

Today we have this beautiful Butterfly girl stamp that our Host Kelly surprised us with in the mail, along with the supplies to make it .

When I took everything out the Buttons they landed by this cute image and I said it looks like she's holding a lollipop I'm sorry but I couldn't get that out of my mind and so I went with it.

I propped her on the green ledge to look like she was sitting , I just love the saying on this paper and played with it by using a spellbinder heart and printing" = You" on it to give a friend, I colored the cute girl with copics and some glitter for her wings , I also used the purple ribbon from Kelly and then layered it on some colored card stock trying to use the colors in the pretty flower paper. On the inside I used a Fiskars heart punch and some left over green card stock for a little border .

Thanks Kelly for such a fun card , I had so much fun :)

Please be sure to stop by all my fiends on my side bar to see all the cute cards made using this very sweet girl.
