Dreamy Edwin

Hello To All!! We are finally getting some very nice weather here in NE Wisconsin~~Yeah!!  Made a card while doing laundry and re-organizing my craft area today :) 
I made a card with folds--not sure if it is a tri-fold or gate fold (LOL--you can call it whatever you like).
Followed sketch at Tickled Pink Stamp Monthly Challenge #1:
Here is Dreamy Edwin :o))))
Papers  used are DCWV At Home Stack

Edwin was colored with copics and cut out and popped up on oval tag.  Added crystal stickles to his wings. Placed pearls and brown rhinestones onto the swirls outlining the image. The swirls were stamped with SU chocolate chip ink.  Doodled between the swirls with my SU brocade blue marker. Distressed edges with distress ink then popped up onto the scalloped oval nestie. Lots of dimension added to this card!!!

Photo of sentiment!! Stamped onto white cardstock--distressed edges with TH distress tool, inked edges with faded jeans distress ink and then softened by lightly daubering the whole sentiment. Matted with brown cardstock--also distressed edges lightly.  Finished with rhinestones and MS tiny butterfly :) Next are photos of inside of card~~ Love how it turned out :D

Used new MS Layered Arches border and corner punch that I got for Mother's Day from my Kids!! Added a scalloped square which was prettied up with swirls, rhinestones and distress ink.  And of course I added more Butterflies.  Aren't they lovely!!  Enjoy these Beautiful butterfly close ups~~

Hope I didn't bore you with all the pics--i just love to show off every little detail--Hee Hee!
