For All You Do Birthday

I'm trying to keep up with my resolution to mail birthday cards this year. So far, so good! I was playing the other night and came up with this one. No sketch, no challenge, just playing and working in new things.


Card base is Elegant Eggplant and I used the new Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder in the Big Shot. Click the photo above to enlarge if you can't see that detail. Then, I trimmed down the right edge of the card and used the new Scallop Trim Border punch. Ask me how you can earn this fabulous punch and other things FREE right now during Sale-A-Bration!! I added additional layers of punched edges in So Saffron & Always Artichoke. For the main image, I stamped the butterfly first in the center of a Whisper White piece of cardstock. Then I masked the image with another piece of paper and stamped the dots over the butterfly in Always Artichoke. I stamped the small flower from the set in Saffron around the edges and sponged lightly with Elegant Eggplant before layering onto Always Artichoke. A So Saffron Striped grosgrain ribbon was tied in the middle and attached with mini glue dots. Lastly, the 'happy birthday' from Well Scripted was stamped in Always Artichoke on Whisper White and punched with the Wide Oval punch. Again, small So Saffron flowers around the edge and sponging with Elegant Eggplant. Attached with dimensionals.

Enjoying a quite morning home alone this am. Have many projects on the to do list though so better get hopping!! Have a great week all!
