Today I am sharing another card I created using this month's Stamp of the Month "Sunshine Birdiesthat's the EXCLUSIVE stamp during March 2016! 

Take a look at this fun card!! J

I used the paper collection from CTMH's Penelope paper pack to create this card.  This paper is so "springy" & "happy" seemed to be the perfect fit! 

The banner was cut from the Artistry cartridge, and I used the designer paper to cut out the frame of the banner while using the dotted b&T paper for the inside of the banner.  I was excited to use 5 different pieces of B&T paper from the Penelope paper pack!!  

The butterflies were stamped with Memento ink, and then I used our Watercolor pencils & blending pen to color in the butterflies!  What FUN to pull out these tools again! 

To finish up this card....I used my scallop border punch to create a border using the white glitter paper (from the gold glitter pack) ...and did you see at the bottom of the card, I used the everyday life washi tape too. 

I had to use our beautiful, purple enamel hearts, so they ended up on the bottom right of the card to continue to sparkle throughout the card.  Check out the variety of enamel shapes we carry at CTMH by clicking here
