Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #6

Happy Birthday Cousin Livi!

A special girl in our family turns 6 this week and I decided to use this weeks sketch from AHSC for the inspiration to create her birthday card.  As with most little girls she is mad about pink and purple, butterfly's and Fairies...

With that in mind I started this card with pink card stock (from my stash) as my base and knew that I really wanted to use flowers, butterfly's and one of the super cute hedgehogs for a very retired stamp set called "Happy Forever".  I stamped my hedgehog in Slate Ink and sponged his coat with Whisper and a dab of blush on his cheeks.

I cut the flowers out using my Circut Art Philosophy and heavily inked the edges in Baby Pink (retired), Blush and Lagoon.  My sentiment is from the Cricut Artist Collection Birthday stamp set and also inked in Lagoon. I laid down two strips of the wonderful Silver Shimmer Trim (literally peel and stick!) and adhered everything to the card trying to follow Michelle's wonderful sketch. 

The cute little butterfly is from the "Irresistibles Miracle Chipboard Die Cuts" which is now a retired product but so fun to use in that the pattern shows up as you apply your ink.  I used a few of the cute button flowers found in the Clear Button Assortment (on special in the While Supplies Last section) and tied the centers of my button flowers and the body of my butterfly with teal shimmer twine from The Twinery. A few sparkles from the Pink & Purple assortment and a few dabs from my Silver Glitter Glitz Gel and I think it is done!  I hope she likes it...
