3 Clovers Thursday Challenge #6

This week's 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge was to create a purple birthday card with glitter in honor of Kerry's birthday on the 1st.
Sounded easy enough so I thought I'd give it a try!
I've been thinking alot about my card making. I love it but I tend to rush through cards and not really "think" about all the extra things I like to do so I'm really going to try to start slowing down and putting more effort and thought into my cards as it's truly the little details that make a card "pop". Little things like sewing, cutting out part of the image and putting it on dimensionals, paper piecing and so on. So that's my new goal...slow it down and think! Even on cards that I don't want bulky, I can still "step them up a bit".
For this card I stamped the balloons twice and cut out one of the images and raised it up on dimensionals.
I also used a sketch from Taylored Expressions, TECC42.
Supplies:
card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
stamps: TAC Dear Friend, A Muse Essential Ovals, TAC Squiggle Ladybugs for sentiment, TAC Birthday Blessings (retired) on inside
paper: Georgia Pacific, Bossoms and Butterflies Stack,
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaMagic Pretty Petunia, Palette French Lilac,
others: copics, stardust pen, iced lavender shimmerz, CM fine tip pen, diamond stickles

Fabulous Danni!
Great purple card, I love the image, the butterfly paper and the popped balloons! The TE sketch is so perfect for this design!
You're right, it's all the extra little touches that usually make a good card great!
Though your cards are already great, so I looking forward to see how YOU step it up! :)
Blessings, Maria
