Carpe Diem

Hello there!
I am back again to show a card I actually got to work a little extra on. It may sound a bit strange when you see it, but sometimes it is so that the end result not at all becomes as planned from the beginning. This card I have had to leave and return to several times.

From the beginning, I tried to do a very simple card. But in the end, it has become a Spring inspired card where I have tried to create a scene with children sitting on the fence among trees and butterflies in the park / garden, looking in to the city.

I colored the stamped images from Bildmålarna with my Copics and cut them out. I used 3D foam to create dimension and placed them on the fence made with Tim Holtz Alterations die. I also used a Forest stencil from Clearscraps and the Classic Words stencil from Wendy Vecchi. Some stamps from Inkido(sentiment), Reprint(Eifel Tower), Stampers Anonymous(hot air balloon) was used together with butterflies from a paper napkin that I first glued onto a cardstock with decoupage coating and then cut out. Okay...I finished of my card with a beautiful old metal button in the bottom left corner.
Wishing you all a happy day!
Hugs, Birgit
