Sugar and spice............

A pink, pink, pink card for a little girl. She is blonde, blue eyed 20 month old that will steal your heart. And smart, she is wiser than all her years. LOL, she's not yet two!
I stamped on Pretty in Pink using Going Gray for the bear and butterfly. Added a little Orchid Opulence on the butterfly, keeping it simple since there is enough going on with all the layers. Unearthed my sewing machine for this one. I have a small one for all my paper projects since I read somewhere that you shouldn't use the same machine for paper and fabric. I just adore the look of the stitching on special cards.

There is no occasion for this card, just to say Hi to my grand daughter, therefore I did not put a sentiment on the front. I'll just write her a little note on the inside.
For the butterfly I stamped the butterfly and then  positioned the punch for the optimal look. Then I used my little snips to cut away some of the unstamped paper, but not all of it. The large butterfly from  'Butterfly of Happiness' set was the best of the bunch for this purpose. I just didn't want a plain butterfly. Hope you like it.
the 'Bow Bear' was the first stamp set that I bought from ebay, years ago. Once stamped and cut out, I used a black marker to outline her and then a little glitter pen for the edge of her bib. A lot of glitter pen all over the butterfly.

RX:

What a stunning card! Your Granddaughter will LOVE it! I love stitching on a card too, but never can seem to get the machine to work right. Wonderful blog you have, and thanks for the comment on mine!
