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.


  1. Well, the card turned out beautifully! Did it help to sell the dies you were targeting? I know it did because if Bonnie makes something with it, everyone wants it! We are all secretly hoping your talents will rub off on us!!!

  2. Oooohhh... Pretty! Wish I'd have some of those Happy Mistakes... your's turned out Fabulously!
