Hanna peek- Day Two and a Beautiful Butterfly

Hi everyone, I have a couple cards to share today. The first card is for Day Two of the Hanna Sneak Peeks! In case you missed my announcement yesterday, I am the April guest designer for Hanna Stamps! Today, I have a peek at the Mommie To Be set. Man oh man, don't you wish we all looked that cute on the birthing ball?!? I mean, just look at that hair and the cute maternity leggings set and WHERE'S her swollen feet?!? LOL!

I made this card for my friend who is pregnant with her third baby and just discovered she's having a boy! So Mem, if you are reading this, it's heading your way!

The image is colored with Copic markers and the DP is from the DCWV Citrus matpack -man I really love the colors in that paper. The primas all have blue rhinestones in the centers and are painted with Angel Wings Shimmerz. Here is a close up pic, you can see I made a double loop bow. You can check out this post for tutorial info.

The Hanna release party is on Monday, April 6th at 9pm Eastern time. You can go to the Hanna Forum on SCS for all the fun, games, challenges and lots of chatting!

The next up is a double challenge card. I used this week's sketch challenge and yesterday's Limited Supplies challenge which was to use:

1 piece of cardstock color - I used Certainly celery
2 pieces of DP - I used DCWV Garden Party
3 embellishments -I used a gem brad, ribbon and pearls

The stamp set is Verve's new release Beautiful Kindness. The image panel and butterfly is popped on dimensionals. I used Lime Green stickles all over the butterfly and trail -very sparkly IRL.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow for Day Three peeks!
