Belles 'n Whistes at 7 Kids College Fund

Have you heard the news? 7 Kids College Fund is now carrying Belles 'n Whistles Stamps. I just LOVE Belles 'n Whistles. So, to celebrate, I made this card...

You can find the following items at 7 Kids College Fund

 I decided to think outside the box and use my Prismacolor Pencils to color my image, using mineral spirits and a blending stump to blend the colors out. Pencils are such a great medium because you can blend colors and create a really natural look.

I used my SU's embossed butterflies for the embellishments. I added some wire and pearls for some extra flair.

I opted for a different style bouquet with a little butterfly for fun.

I used the sketch from Wild Orchid Challenge for my card today, and will enter their challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!
