Sweet Pea Card

This week over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge our twist is BABIES/TODDLERS. We are being sponsored by Stitchy Bear, and this darling digi comes from their store. Be sure to check out their wonderful selection of digital stamps at:
I made the base for this card using The Spring Orchid Collection dies by Couture to make a top-hinge card and frame for my card front.
I filled in the frame with some die cuts I've had in my stash for years from a card magazine I bought ages ago. I don't even remember which magazine it was, but they're finally getting used now! I love when that happens!
For the digi, I imported it to my Silhouette Design Studio software and sized it for the card. I printed it out and colored it with Copic and MEXPY markers. I added a frame underneath the digi and popped up the image with foam squares. Then I added some butterflies from the same set as the frame and flowers. I decided to add some Dew Drops to give their bodies some dimension. I also added a "Grow" sticker from my stash that seemed perfect for this card!
