Sat. Cardpatterns and reviewing my Bobunny project

This is our final project with Odd Bird as our sponsor, and I think so far that this card is my favorite by far! I added a bit of Anna Griffin ribbon, making a big bow at the top of the card. Then added a MM journal spot as my background paper. I added a bit of this vintage song image, then added some bits of cardstock I punched with my Martha punch, then inked the edges.
I had painted and glittered my wooden goose, then added the ribbon bow at it's neck. The greeting is Basic Grey letters. I love how this turned out!!

I also wanted to share this birthday gift set I made to showcase on the Bobunny blog.

I used some older patterns of paper on this, these two papers from older collections, Smitten and Felicity. I loved the Smitten paper because I wanted to cut out the flowers. I used my long term borrowed *smirk* butterfly stamps- my sister Kelly lent them to me a while ago- they are CTMH stamps- Butterflies. I also used some Bobunny stamps- the beautiful swirl stamp. It's a clear stamp- and I also used a technique of triple stamping the image before reinking- to give it a shadowed and lighter look.

This provo craft frame was super cheap, and I used the same color stamp ink on the sides of the unfinished frame, it really looks nice and ties in all the colors. When I stamped the Bflies, I also covered them with glitter. I bought this Darice jumbo bottle of glitter glue at Joanne's- and it lasts forever, plus it's WAY cheaper then Stickles- so I use that a LOT! I also added dots of the glitter in the middle of the flowers.
I fussy cut the flowers, and folded the flowers and leaves for dimension. I added in a few gem strips and swirls to the frame, just to add a bit more glitz.
Lastly I added a brown gingham bow and topped it with a button.
The phrase I found, and you can certainly find many more personalized quotes on the internet.

The card is made pretty much the same as the frame, then I trimmed the edges of the card and paper with my cloud scissors, never have owned a corner rounder.
The stickers are MM and Scenic Route. I added in a touch more older Bobunny gingham ribbon.

Have a fantastic evening!
I've got a movie date with my hubby- just the two of us curled up on the couch watching a flick.
