Birthday Butterflies

This card is for my next-door neighbor, who is also a great friend – and she loves purple.

I had out some Almost Amethyst cardstock and this stamp, and they went together just fine! The stamp is by Good Impressions. I stamped it with Versafine Black Onyx. It’s colored with Stampin’ Up! markers in Almost Amethyst and Certainly Celery. I also used a white gel pen near the leaves and on the butterflies. Surprise – the background is embossed with a Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug folder. LOL! The sentiment is by All-Night Media, stamped with Almost Amethyst ink. It was cut out with oval Nestabilities and embellished with black brads and black dots on the scallops with a gel pen. I sponged the edges of the CB’ed panel and the sentiment with AA ink, also. When everything was all put together – with the sentiment panel up on Pop Dots – I used Crystal Stickles on the butterflies for a little “glitz.”

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
