Laughed So Hard..

The weather is really cold and rainy where I live today and I have a thousand and one things to do but I decided I needed some crafty time first! 

This set called "Laughing" from the Art Impressions Girlfriend line just cracks me up!! This will end up being my best friends Birthday card (and yes there is a reason I used this sentiment!) shhh don't tell her :)

I started by colouring the stamp with SN alcohol markers and then fussy cut it. I used patterned paper from Doodlebug and die cut a doily to put behind the girls. Some pop dots behind the fussy cut image add some dimension to my card. Ribbon, a butterfly charm and some silver glitter gumdrops finish off my card.
