Butterfly birthday wishes card


Featured Stamper

Today's card came together very quickly! I was so inspired by two challenges, and set to make this card.

The colors Barbara gave at The Color Throwdown #692 are: pink, purple, gold and white. Such a beuatiful combination!

Next was the great sketch by Amy, at Freshly Made Sketches #535:

For the focal point I wanted to use one of the butterflies from 'More Brilliant Butterflies' set by My Favorite Things, but I also wanted a circular element, so why not use them both?

I stamped the butterfly in two shades of pink (Ranger's archival ink 'pink peony' and Hero Arts' 'Cotton Candy'), and ink (Hero Arts' 'Passion Flower).

I don't have the co-ordinate dies for this set, so I cut it out with sccisors.

I had a scrap of white/gold pp, so I used it for the large banner. I looked at my washi tapes and found one that was just perfect for the colors - gold and pink. I adhered it on a scrap of white cs, and there's the stripe on the bottom.

The sentiment ( was heat embossed with Lindy's Gang 'Oom Pah Pah Pink' ep. I placed it under the pp stripe, as it seems as another stripe.

I finished up with some translucent dew drops.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Your comments are much appreciated.
