MMSC16 Butterfly Flower Fairy and Baby Card

Hi everyone! It's nice to be back to posting an MMSC card. I really missed not posting one last week. I can't believe that we are on the MMSC16 already and that it is almost Fall, and school is starting this week!! I want to say a special thank you to our sponsor this month...Simon Says Stamp They have been very generous to us , and we hope that you will stop by their store and see all of the wonderful items that they have to offer.

This was a nice card for me to do to get that last bit of summer into my cards. I just love working with the feminine cards, so of course, I used lots of pink, frills, and sparkle for this card. It was just perfect for me. I want to thank Michelle Perkett from Enchanted Inspirations so much for providing these images for us to use this week. I completely enjoyed them. If you haven't seen Michelle's artwork yet, you have to take a few moments and pop over there to check out all of her beauties!! She is very talented! I chose to cut and pop her image due to the sketch this week and my inexperience with sizing digi's properly. I needed to be sure that this sweet image fit onto my card, so I had to trim away the background, but I would love to do this image again sometime with the full background as well. This card is just full of glitter and glitz.....that's the way I like them! I couldn't resist making the inside just as sweet and sparkly as the outside, so I went to work creating the magical inside to this card which includes a very feminine and frilly pocket graced with jeweled butterflies and a pretty flower.....AND just to go the little extra mile, I created a little journal tag/photo card that fits perfectly inside the pocket. I also made a matching, decorated and lined thick box envelope to match and complete this set, but I forgot to load the picture on here, and don't know how to place extra pictures inside of the post once it is already written. Sorry about that!

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed looking at my card and hope that you find a bit of inspiration to entice you to want to create your own entry for this week's MMSC challenge. Check out Priscilla's blog for any other MMSC news and details.

Carolyn this card has put on the "Ritz". It's dazzling with all that glitz and glamor. I have enjoyed viewing how each of you who chose this design have created your own special spark of creativity with it. Your addition of flowers to the skirt is impressive. Just wonderful and remarkable both inside and out.
