Butterfly birthday wishes

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday!

Today, I’m playing along in two challenges – the current Case This Sketch challenge and the Poppystamps monthly challenge.

When I saw the sketch, I played around with various corner stamps but I wanted to do something a bit different so I started looking through my dies. I liked the positioning of the butterflies on the three frames of the Poppystamps Butterfly Triptych die and realised that I could use them in my take on the sketch challenge by simply cutting away half of each of the frames.

First, I prepared my card base by lightly stamping a background stamp by My Favorite Things in Tumbled Glass distress ink. I then took a background I’d created from some distress oxide inks and used it to cut out the butterflies and the Mod Birthday wishes sentiment. I then inlaid the die cut pieces into each butterfly.

Finally I added some glittery butterflies by Simon Says Stamp to finish off my card.

I’m also entering this into the new AAA Birthday Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
