Flutterby Butterfly!

Good Tuesday Morning to ya! Hope everyone is having a good morning so far....I am off to run some errands this morning and hopefully to come home and create some new cards too!

This is a card full of firsts!! This is the first time I have used Beautiful Tilda (perfect image for girl's birthday parties!! My boys are 6 & 7 and what girl their age wouldn't love a card like this?)

My second first on this card is that this is the first time I have created a crocheted border. It was simple, but a little time consuming. I love to crochet, so this was fun to bring 2 passions together. Directions for creating this border can be found on page 68 of the Will You Be My Valentine Magnolia Ink Magazine. My third first for today is that this is the first time I am busting out this new K & Co DP - Spring Blossom. The sweet sentiment is from Whiff of Joy's Aladdin set and can be found here. They are such pretty stamps and come with wonderful sentiments!! Very worth the investment! Lastly, I used some of my favorite items on this card as usual: fern punch, WOC flowers, and distresser tool.
It would not be a card without Stickles of course!!

Copics used:
E11, 00, 000, R30, G24, 21, 20, R83, 81, W5, 3, 00, E35, 53, 50
