This is a sample A2 card I made for the store. The Essex label die from from Memory Box was not selling, so I used it here to  pop up the Fabulous Friends saying. I found an old piece of Bo Bunny's Persuasion to use as a background paper on a mauvy pink Bazzil cardstock. I stippled it all with the Tim Holtz stippler applicator. The butterfly was a total mistake. I used one from the My Favorite Things Butterfly set and  stamped it with a pink pigment ink on vellum. I had intended to heat emboss the butterfly with clear embossing powder, but accidently poured on Heat & Stick powder. When I applied heat, it started to bubble and I realized my mistake, so I grabbed a jar of Crystal Art Glitter and sprinkled it on the butterfly. So, everywhere there is pink ink, there is now pink colored glitter. It turned out great. I love happy mistakes. I used the scalloped corner punch for all the corners and placed some clear bling in each coener, then colored them with R85 Copic marker.
