Summer Love

I made this card for the BBTB2 Challenge.  The rules were simple: use your cricut, use a stamp and think summer.  I downloaded this free stamp from Sliekje digi Stamps.  Isn't he just the cutest?  I fell in love with him and couldn't believe they were giving him away.  Anyhow, my first thought was a summer garden filled with wild flowers and grass.  He was colored using the magic colored pencil technique.  All patterned paper is basic grey.  The card itself is a 4 1/16" x 9 5/16".    Cartridges used:  Walk in My Garden, Hannah Montana, Gypsy Wanderings, Give A Hoot, and Paper Doll Dress Up.  I simply streched the layers of grass in my Gypsy and layered them.  Outer grass layer is popped with pop dots.  The butterflys were layered twice with the shadow in two different shades and only the body was attached to the shadows.  I then bent the wings upward.  Inked edges were done with Stampin' Ups Chocolate Chip.  I love how this turned out!!!
