Pink Elephant Blog Challenge #7

I treated myself to some Daisy and Dandelion clear stamps and papers with some of my birthday money. Also bought some 3D decoupage, but haven't used that yet, instead I stamped 'Bubbles' out twice and then layered him. I'd cut about an inch off the front of the card as I wanted to used the flowery paper as well as the dots, but there's only one sheet of each in the packet, so added the acetate so you could see both and so that I could add the 'Happy Birthday' Peel-offs down the side too. (Bargin at 25p!) I used Bazzill Basics Paper 'Red Carpet' through my BigShot in a CuttleBug embosser, as that was part of the challenge, then used a small Woodware punch for the flowers and finished off with Stickles glitter. Not sure where the ribbon came from, probably the local Craft Shop. (or a box of chocolates)
I thought I might enter him into a Blog Challenge. That's where the idea came from...but I can't quite make up my mind!
I made another one! Trouble is the card would have been really small if I'd just stuck to the size of the embossed Paper.
The papers I used here were a bargain. 12 sheets of 12x12, two of each design for 1.99. I cut an extra butterfly out otherwise he would've been hidden by the embossed paper. I coloured the folder with chalk, just to see what would happen... (I'd seen it on a YouTube video, think I may not have done it quite right but it sort of worked, it's hard to see in the photo. Wellllllll.... while I've been typing this I think I might enter the top card into the Pink Elephant #7 Challenge.
Here's the sketch, just in case you feel you want to have a go too!
Thanks for looking! See you tomorrow.
