you give me butteflies....

besides a little bling for this cute beautiful is that it's 3D and sparkling with Star Dust from Stickles.
 My granddaughter Madison loves butterflies (a girl after her grandmas's (that's me :) ) heart.  I love butterflies too!!  She is going to be hanging this up in her room.  We aren't even done yet.  I think were going to be making lots of these cute 3D butterflies in various sizes!!
It actually looks cuter in person that it does here.  copper stickles is on the "give me" &  Glam pink Stickles is on the rest and really looks cute.   Straight from the Nest cricut cartridge is used on the expression and Gypsy.  Close to My Heart cardstock is used. (all 3 colors)  but to lazy to get up. :0.....   Notice above the "i" in butterflies. we put a large bling from ctmh there too.

See where the "give me" is smeared from the above pic.  looks so much cuter now!

This is the back of the door hanger.  I doubled the letters on the word ROOM.  They are the fonts on this cartridge.
This is the card from this cartridge.  the words go along with it as layers detail 2.  If you have seen this cartridge already.. you know a superman is on the front.  i did cut it out but lo' and behold...  it tore and therefore running out of time  -I excluded it from the card.
I used the Superman cartridge.  This is the door hanger and the words that go along with the door hanger.  I added the font on this cartridge for his name.  The superman symbol is from the layers on the card.

I loved creating this dinosaur from Create a Critter cut at 2.80w & 2.68 h.  It is so easy to create on my gypsy since I had been working on creating this card for a few days.  Other items used:  *Gypsy wanderings used for the frame that Dino sits on and then embossed using the Cracked embossing folder from Tim Holtz from Sizzix.    ** Cuttlebug set of Animal prints was used to emboss the tail and the top body of the dinosaur.  I used peachy Keen stamps from critter faces set A med.  ** I also used cardstock from Ctmh: kiwi (deleted now) , orange and clover meadow.  Bamboo Ink from ctmh used on the edging of card.  I love inking around edges!!    ** the twine is also from CTMH.  ** oops.. fogot which cartridge the leaves came from..  My gypsy is not near me (how dare I .. lol)  **  The saying on the outside of the card is one my hubby thought of when I told him I was making a birthday card..  Cute huh!!     ** the inside of the card saying is from CTMH D1111 card sentiments.   I hope you have enjoyed this card.  It is for a card swap with our Swarm ladies.
