Flutterby Gigi

Good Morning All! Well one of my New Year's reolutions is to try and keep up with birthdays. I have two friends celebrating this month and this card is made for one of them. I had a whole lot of stuff planned for the weekend but getting the Christmas tree down trumped most of it. I did manage to get one of my IKEA Alex cabinets put together I have one more to do and a bookshelf. I'm revamping my craft space.

For my card I used Gigi from The Greeting Farm. She is a new release for this month. Isn't she just cute? I love her flippy hair do and that flower headband. The designer papers are from DCWV Mariposa with PTI solid cardstock. The sentiment from Butterfly Wishes also from The Greeting Farm. I made the flower using Polka Dot Blooms from There She Goes and a half pearl. Gigi was colored with copics and I sponged the polka dot flower with Distress Ink to make it match the butterflies in the background. I hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by. I used Sketch #49 from Inspirational Card Sketches. Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT located in my sidebar did with the sketch.
