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.
