Let me tell you a little bit of how I used all the products above to create this card.

I first started with the Nuvo Blending Sponges  and Carrot Stick ink from the
Just sponging fun dots on an embossed confetti card stock.

Next I stamped the image from Emma’s Best Birthday
I then used Water Color Pencils Hair/Skin Tones to start
water coloring her hair and skin tones on water color paper.

I finished coloring her in with Aqua Flow Watercolor Pens Surprise Party
and a water brush.

I added Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive glue to her apron and shoes, 
then sprinkled Gypsy Red glitter on.
I did the same for the 'frosting' on the cake, but this time I
used Tangerine glitter and a Nuvo Craft Spoon to apply.
If you are not familiar with this spoon, it allows you to easily apply
glitter in all those tiny little neat!

I added a piece of Tear-ific Tape ½” to the inside,
then added Tangerine glitter to the adhesive strip.
I also stamped the sentiment with Versamark (both inside and out),
then embossed with  Red Apple embossing powder.

I added little dots all around the cake image.
A pretty yellow gingham bow and purchased butterfly were 
added to finish.
Also in the making of this card I used a few of my very favorite products,
TimHoltz Stamp Platform to stamp my images with. 
I use this daily and can't imagine how I would stamp without this thing!
Also I use on a daily basis the double sided Tear-ific Tape ¼” and 
And last but not least, I have the Nuvo Stamp Cleaning Pad along with

Thank you for visiting with me today,
I know it was a long post, but I hope I have given you some ideas with
some of these fabulous products! (all the links are above).

This is truly adorable! Sitting here smiling. Oh my gosh, LOVE the butterfly! I had a bunch of those years ago and used them all up. That was back when I made lots of chunky cards. Don't think I ever had a yellow one, sigh...
