Pretty Cute Stamps April Challenge - Just For Her!

It's time for another awesome challenge over at the Pretty Cute Stamps blog!! This month the challenge is 'Just For Her' and we would love to see all the pretty creations you make for the girls in your life!

I wanted to make a birthday card for my sweet niece and I recently saw some pretty paper bag envelope packages on Pinterest, so I thought I'd use my Cricut and the Spring Flowers stamps from Pretty Cute Stamps. 

I used the cute little seed packet from the Grow stamp set and popped it up on a bit of metallic purple thread. The heart stamp is also popped up on foam dots in the middle of the polka dot bow, which I outlined with the new Dylusions white paint pen. Lovin' this!
I love that you can see the sentiment on this card through the little envelope window! Below you can see what the inside looks like when you pull it out. I used the SVG files from the Pretty Cute Stamps store to first cut all the outlines from white cardstock with my Cricut Explore, and then I stamped them all before colouring them in with alcohol based markers.

I've been playing with my Color Burst powders and I found they worked really well on the Recollections resist paper pad I have. You can see this purple and orange resist background peeking out behind the doily.

I had to add this happy little sunshine and cute cloud from the Rain or Shine stamp set. A few beads from May Flaum's 28 Lilac Lane embellishment kit, Attic Findings, created the perfect little butterfly trail around these lovely flowers.

On the back of both my envelope and card I stamped some birthday wishes from the Wish Big stamp set and added a few more stamps, leaving room to write a special birthday message to my niece.

Here's a look at the awesome stamp sets I used on my project:
