Butterfly Kisses

I got my order from the craft's meow here. I got several new nina b. designs stamps and just couldn't wait to use this one. It is way out of the ordinary of what I usually like but a little spice never hurts.

First I stamped the butterflies with a light pink chalk ink all over and then stamped the fairy image over top using gingerbread chalk ink.  Stamped the words using burnt umber palette ink. Applied the edges with petunia pink chalk ink and some more of the gingerbread. I outlined the image and the wings with a glitter gelly roll pen and then tried to add just an eye. Well then she looked like an alien. What to do - I colored the whole image with the glitter pen and liked it oh so much better than with just the ink. I put two different flower soft colors on the flower that she is blowing. The flower stem was done a green souffle pen. The two butterflies are stamped with the petunia pink ink and cut out. The pink border was done by using a butterfly border die from memory box. I cut two butterfly borders out and the middle piece is what I used for the border. The dp is from basic grey. The ribbon is from the see spot save section at Target. A few pearls and the card is complete.
Here is the inside and you can see the butterfly border.

Hope you enjoy.
