The Stamps of Life: Butterfly Birthday


Hi, friends!  Happy Monday! ;)  I hope you had a great weekend.  Mine was ok, but I've been battling a stomach bug the past few days.  Luckily, my essential oils have helped me feel WAY better than I would feel without them!  Anyway, I do have a card to share with you, so come and take a peek...


I started by creating the focal image with the Sizzix Triplits Butterfly dies and Licorice cardstock from The Stamps of Life. The pink glitter paper is from DCWV. Some black rhinestones and enamel dots were added for more shine and color.


I then stamped images and sentiment from the chalksayings2stamp with Licorice ink and Artichoke ink onto Powdered Sugar cardstock.  The banner was cut out and dimensionalized like the butterfly onto the main panel, which was layered onto more Licorice cardstock.  I did some faux stitching for some added texture, too.



I decided to angle the focal panel for more interest when adding it to my card base.  The card base was prepped with patterned paper from the Celebrate Collection Patterned Paper Pad and Powdered Sugar cardstock.  I think this is super fun and bright--what do you think?  I'd love to hear in the comments below!


I'm entering this card into these fabulous challenges~

(HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MONIKA!!!)






That's all for me today, friends!  Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by and leaving some love!  Your comments just make my day!  I hope you take some time to join in these fun challenges, and I'll see you again soon!  Until then, HUGS and happy stamping! :)
