Card for dad from his little girl

A new challenge starts today at Wags 'n Whiskers.  The theme is Father's Day.  I created this card with the idea that it would be given from a little girl to her dad.  This adorable image is called Snuzzle Love.   I colored the image with Copic markers, then cut out with Nestabilities dies.  Added a doily that I cut out with my Silhouette Cameo, some flowers with pearl centers and a ribbon.

Trying something new with my Silhouette cut files

I purchased this pretty floral cut file (#25154) from the Silhouette store a few months ago.  When I opened the cut file with my Studio software today, I decided I would have to cut it at a really large size due to all the tiny petals.  So instead of using it as a cut file, I converted it to a printed image using this tutorial from the Silhouette blog.  Then I aligned  the printed image inside a pretty frame embossing folder called Cabaret from Couture Creations.  Trimmed the edges, then machine stitched to a medium blue layer.  Adhered some foam tape to the back of the medium blue layer and attached that to the navy blue cardstock base.  Cut a butterfly with my Silhouette and attached with foam tape on top of the flowers.  Added tiny pearls to flowers and butterfly.  Used a glue dot to attached bow.

Hello there

I saw a fun little mousie photo on the (Pin)spirational challenge and knew I had to make a card.  I printed a precolored mouse digi from Dearie Dolls, then used up a bunch of left over items from other projects.  Papers are printables from Lettering Delights.  Fence punch is from Martha S.  Not sure who makes the small flower punch.  Also used pearls on the flowers and twine on the saying.
