Mini Cards!

I'm a big fan of mini cards.  In fact, I'm a big fan of anything mini... perhaps it's because I'm only 5 foot tall. But anyway, I've decided to do a mini card focus for the next few days.  And apart from being mini, they will all have something ELSE in common... you'll never guess. :) 

Supplies: Image and Stamp - Hero Arts; Digital PP - Scrapartist (FREE here); Nesties - Labels Trio; White Inkssentials Pen; Sewing machine; Copic marker.
Tips: For a bit of a change, instead of sewing on this card, I used my sewing machine to punch holes.  AND - after colouring the butterfly with a Copic marker, I added white dots with a gel pen, inspired by my lovely friend Kathy .  Click here to visit her AMAZING blog.  She's an amazing colourer / cardmaker / person. 

P.S. - Emily - this one's winging it's way to you as I type :)
