Beautiful Insides

Happy Wednesday to you!  Hope you are experiencing a splendid day in your part of the world.  I am back today with a card that is completed inside and out!  The new Crafty Creations challenge for the week allowed me to remember that  I sometimes forget and  focus all my energy and creativity on the outside and  when I open it up and  find it bare, it's kind  of a let down.  So today I share a birthday card that's truly complete!


I started with a handcut journal bracket from a piece of My Mind's Eye "Lost and Found" and then began layering, stitching, and distressing.  I used a Melissa Frances glittered chipboard heart and added a few stamps from Amy Butler for the sentiment and ticket I made.  I punched a butterfly twice and added a little Stickles to the center to accent.  The organza flower was a gift from a swap many moons ago.  I strung three pink buttons on some twine for the left and tied off.  I also added two kraft photo corners because I wanted to use Card Pattern's # 90 sketch. 
For the inside I stamped another Amy Butler stamp and colored in lightly with markers for a subtle effect.  I added the final words for my sentiment using Pink Paislee's sticklers. 
I hope you like it!  I was really pleased with this!
