So you can do either one............or both if you wish!!! I decided to do the card.............scroll down to the end of my post and check out what all the other gals have done, just click on the links and it will take you to their blog........



Products Used:

Prima Fairy Flora 6"x6" Paper Pad

Justrite- My Garden Set

Cuttlebug Embossing Folder- Polka Dots
Harmonie Chipboard Butterfly
Kaiser Craft Silver Rhinestones
Distress Stickles- Rock Candy
American Crafts- String Caramel
Buttons

So here's how I put it together..............I used the paper from the Prima pad and embossed it with the Polka Dots folder, then layered the green cardstock and a strip from the Prima pad and then the Purple cardstock.  I stamped the image and sentiment from the my garden set and cut them out with the Spellbinder's dies. Coloured the image with my Copics and used the distress ink on the sentiment. Adhered them all to the scalloped circle.

Now for the fun part.......I just had to try a new technique......I cut the circles from the Sticky back canvas and used the sticky side of it and put my mini cosmic swirls template on it and applied the embossing powder, then I peeled off the template and heated the embossing powder. Then you apply the glitter. I just love this technique!!! Here's a close up of what it looks like...........it is more glittery in person..........



So now I glued the Prima paper to the butterfly and trimmed, I used my Copic to go around the outside of the butterfly and to colour the string. Threaded the buttons on and made some antennas and glued the butterfly on to my card. Now what's a card without some bling..........lol...............so I added the rhinestones.

So now check out what everyone else has done with the sketch and say hello while you're there...........
