Digiments September Release: Sneak Peek Day 2 - Favorite Aunt

This card is my original design today. The digiment  is part of the Favorites series. I decided to pair the digiment with a swirly butterfly stamped image. I recently won some blog candy from my friend Lauri Ingram (Paperville). I was so surprised when she sent me an email informing me that I had won! Woo Hoo! She sent me 3 different clear stamp sets from Hot off the Press - Silhouettes and Shadows, Flights of Fancy and Mix your Messages. They are totally my style of stamps! Wasn't that so nice of her to offer blog candy from her stash!!! Thanks so much Lauri!

I stamped the swirly butterfly using Palette Ink (Burnt Umber). Then I stamped just the butterfly on kraft cardstock and popped it up to give the illusion of flying and added a little bit of glitter glue on the wing swirls. The patterned papers are from Me and My Big Ideas paper stack. I added some cross-stitching at the top (hand stitched) and added a lace border on the bottom of the card. To give it more of a vintage feel, I sponged Creamy Caramel around the edges of the card. Instead of printing the digiment directly on paper or the card base, I created a tag that hangs from a string and satin ribbon. The tag has also been sponged with Creamy Caramel ink.

This is going to my aunt whose birthday is in October. I will most likely send her a matching set of cards as a birthday gift.
