Butterfly Birthday Wishes

I had a rough day at work. Nothing really wrong, just I had no patience with adults. The kids, they were themselves and that's what makes my job fun.  This is the time of year they get cabin fever and making a card with flowers and butterflies on it certainly makes spring near. (even though Spring fever is worse than cabin fever).  I turned to stamp therapy tonight before updating my website for tomorrow.

Anyhoo.... here is my creation:


I found the color combo using Color Q challenges. I switched out Basic Black for Night of Navy.  I like it. Not too bad for a girly card! The collage technique--where you layer stamped images over one another is fun because it makes you want to add every image in the set! I held back and only used seven out of eleven. (I still do math, even while stamping.) 

The background paper is the Irrestistably Yours Designer Series Paper. I used my Smokey Slate and a brayer to get the even tone. The leafy parts resisted the ink and remained blank. I am in love with this paper and plan to show more ideas as I think of them.




Join us for some fun this week! Note that I tried to use the sketch with the lumberjack card Sunday, but didn't feel it was a good enough match to the sketch in the end.
