Die Cuts at Fab'n' Funky


Good morning, there's a new challenge starting over at Fab'n' Funky today, hosted by our lovely Sue who has picked the theme of Add Die Cuts- a popular theme this week it seems! 
This is the card I made for my eldest granddaughter- my beautiful girl is 16 today! Seems like only yesterday she was a tiny baby and now, here she is a real 'Sweet 16'. She truly is the loveliest girl- and I'm so proud of her. 
I used a pretty digi, a Patreon freebie  from Krista Smith, coloured with copic markers. I've blended ink around the edges and added some die cut flowers (Memory Box- I think) which I cut from a panel of card that I'd previously smooshed with inks and Brushos, and some die cut and punched butterflies plus a few sequins for a bit of sparkle.
On the inside I've used the same colour ink as on the front with various stamps and stencils- Photos were taken in different light- hence the different colours.
Please pop over to Fab'n' Funky to see what my lovely teamies have created for this theme- then I hope you'll find the time to join in and share a creation of your own.
Thanks for visiting
