Non-Stamped Birthday

Another card I made when I got up SO early last week. No stamping involved:)

This is a Papertrey Ink die that I used when I got together with my stamping friends last summer. I placed it over striped cardstock and mounted on pop dots. The dotted cardstock was from the same pad from My Mind's Eye. 

Here is another card using the same die cut, but with the "very" gone. It didn't cut well on this one. The cardstock behind it is some that I made using distress inks and a stencil. I punched the butterflies out of the same piece. I glued them on to a piece of white cardstock and embossed with a Stampin' Up! folder. I mounted the sentiment panel on pop dots. I added a butterfly to the raised panel, also, with pearls for the body.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Stamped or non-stamped, they're fabulous cards! You had me at the polka dots on the first one. Pretty how you shaded the second one, and the punched butterfly really pulls it all together. So glad to see you're having some time to create.
