EDIT: I was not totally happy with this card so did some adjustments and have the before and after ( above) both posted here for you to view. Cheeky Boy is a Penny Johnson stamp from Stampavie. For the purpose of this card I made it a cute little girl rather than a boy as the stamp lends to either gender. This was cut using a Spellbinder curved rectangle die and distressed with Antique Linen. Using a variety of Copic Markers to color the image a feeling of Spring appears. The paper is from the Imaginisce 6 x 6 Enchanted pad. The flowers are from my stash and are finished of with a pearl that I have colored for the center. The sentiment is from my stash as well. A really simple, fun to color card. Hope you enjoy.

Well this is an envelope and a card too. This can be used as a gift card holder or for a small gift item. The outside is a 5.5 x 8.5 scored at 2 and 6 then folded. Scor Tape was used on the edges of the 2.5 fold to create the envelope. The design paper is Quite Contrary from My Minds Eye. Say it with bling by want 2 scrap was put on the outside. I stamped the border from Bird Houses from JustRite on white and mounted it on the pink from the backside of the DP. This was cut with the large scallop circles from Spellbinders. The leaves were colored with Copic Markers and Pearl Ink from Viva finished off the border. The Birdhouse was stamped on white and colored with Copic Markers and it too was mounted on the backside and cut and mounted the same as the border. I did use some Antique Linen Distress Ink on the scalloped paper. The inside of the card ( right) was stamped Happy Birthday from the JustRite "Baroque Nested Frames and Occasions. So we have a card and an envelope all in one and I am putting it in the JustRite Challenge 050 Spring or Birthday Gift or Envelope. Hope you enjoy.
