A birthday card with a green butterfly

For today, I have a rather dramatic birthday card to share.

Th florish stamp is an oldie one from Blue Fern Studios. I think I have it for more than 10 years, and I haven't used it for ages. I stamped it in VersaFine onyx black ink.

The flower is MFT Brilliant Butterflies stamps and dies set. I stamped it in distress oxide inks - rustic wilderness and twisted citron, and again onyx black ink. 

I also stamped some dots in twisted citron ink, and added two glittery enamel dots in dark green.

I double matted the stamped panel with black cardstock and with a white cardstock, which I inked with the distress oxide rustic wildeerness (and so I did for the horizontal stripe at the bottom.

The sentiment was stamped on a citron cardstock with Pinkfresh evergreen ink.
