Thinking of You Friendship Card

Hello, crafty friends! I hope you're having a happy week! :o) I'm popping in to share a card featuring two of my favorite lines carried by 7 Kids College Fund: Elisabeth Bell's Whimsy Stamps collection and Wild Rose Studio!

Elisabeth is one of my favorite artists and it is always a treat to color up one of her sweet images! For this friendship card, I chose the adorable Lemon Pepper.
How precious is she leaning toward her little birdie friend? I just want to hug her! I used the out-of-the-box technique to cut her out with a Spellbinders Standard Small Circle die (the largest of the set) and colored her with Copics. Portions of the image are sparklified with Star Dust and Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. I used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and a cloud template to sponge the sky.
The beautiful papers are from Wild Rose Studio's Butterfly Glade collection. The rich shade of purple and the lovely butterflies make these patterns two of my favorites. Lemon Pepper's balloon is paper-pieced to give it a fancy flowery design. I surrounded her with Wild Orchid Crafts roses, which are atop Cheery Lynn Designs' Mini Fanciful Flourish. My Pink Gem Designs sentiment is from their Vintage Occasions stamp set.

Naturally I couldn't resist adding a bright sunshiny butterfly, my favorite from Cheery Lynn's Small Exotic Butterflies #2 set.
Copics Used: 
Clothing: RV63, RV66, RV 69; Y000, Y11, Y15; B91, B93, B95
Hair: E33, E35, E37
Skin: E0000, E000, E00
Grass: YG17, YG23, G28
