Seize the Birthday + MHKDesigns: Butterfly Birthday


Hi, friends!  I am back with another creation for the current challenge at Seize the Birthday!!!  I've been having tons of fun with this talented DT, and I hope you've been playing along with us!




You can never have too many birthday cards, and I can't wait to share with you what I have for this fortnight's challenge!  The challenge for the next two weeks is "Anything Birthday Goes" with a topping option of "Birds, Bees, or Butterflies". Check out my creation...


I used the Butterfly Wisdom digital stamp set from MHKDesigns for the image on this card.  I colored this image in with Spectrum Noir markers, then added some glitter for extra shine and sparkle.  Various washi tapes help to anchor the image in place atop a dry embossed focal panel.  


The sentiment, from the Fruit Borders digital stamp set, was printed onto vellum before being added to the card.  The patterned paper is from the Stars & Stripes digital paper pack.  A few sequins help to add more shine around the fun sentiment.


The focal panel was added to the card base with dimensional foam to add a bit more depth to this creation.  I love the way this turned out, and I hope you do, too!  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!


Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at my creation today, friends!  I hope you take some time to join in the fun at Seize the Birthday!  I'll be back soon with more paper crafted creations to share with you.  Until then, HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)

This card is wonderfully put together and thought out Mynn! The coors, and the embossing, and the washi tape are so complimentary. Super job! It's so wonderful coming over to you blog and looking around!
