Birthday Blessings

Good Sunday Morning.......Happy Easter!

Today's card was made for 2 Challenges at Stamp TV, Color and Sketch and for the Simon Says Wednesday, Happy Birthday.

The Challenge colors were Blue & Orange, not a Broncos Fan, but I love these colors on a card!

I love the clean look to this card, probably because of the wonderful sketch.  Designer Papers from my stash.  I used the Fabulous Frames stamp set by Gina K Designs.  Spellbinders Classic and Hearts Circle dies.  I stamped the large butterfly image twice, once on the circle die cut and once on white card stock.  I colored the bottom image in a light orange using Copic Markers and then using more orange colors for the image that I fussy cut out.  I also added glitter using Versa Mark ink, Heat & Stick Powder and Dazzling Diamonds.  It is spectacular in real life.  I then popped it up on 3D pop dots for dimension.  I also stamped a small, colored, butterfly on the inside and added a notched border of orange designer paper to the top for accents.  

Sentiment stamped in Tuxedo Black ink.  I was going to add some pearls or enamel brads, but I like how it turned out without them.  Simple.  Clean.
Check out all of the Challenges, still plenty of time to play in each one.
Have a wonderful day, with friends, with family, and some inner peace.


  1. Oh boy, you have motivated me with this one! I love your take on all three challenges with just one card. I also love the orange and blue and all of the things that you ca do with that combo. I bet the butterfly steals all of the attention with the addition of the glitter.

  2. What a great card my dear. The butterfly is gorgeous and I think it's perfect without pearls or brads. Happy Easter!

  3. Wonderful card! I guess I'd better jump in on a challenge or're making me look bad! I really like the color scheme here, and the sketch is perfect.

  4. I love blue and orange together too, and you have used it beautifully here. And good for you to use the same card for the two challenges, good idea. Your butterfly is so perfect on here, love how you colored him. Gorgeous card!
