Bold Bright Birthday Butterflies

Hi there and happy mid-week to you! I had a wonderful time in Pennsylvania over the weekend with my friends! We went out for breakfast, lunch and dinner, went for a local wine tasting and just relaxed. A perfect way to spend a birthday! Thanks to Jim, Lauretta and Cathy! I can’t believe that the season is almost over and we will be closing up the house for the winter in a few weeks. This year is just flying by.

My card for today is actually one that I made for my friend Sue back in June. It’s a Mini Slimline measuring 6 1/4 x 3 1/4. To create my background I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin and Picked Raspberry. I applied them to a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb with my Blending Brushes and added the completed panel to my card base. The strip of butterflies is cut out of a piece of Pink Vellum using the Concord & 9th Butterflies Perfect Pairings Dies. That die has solid butterflies that coordinate with the Concord & 9th Bold Butterflies Stamps and Dies. I stamped those butterflies in Gina K Amalgam Ink and Concord & 9th Buttercup and Marmalade Ink. Those are added to the butterfly strip with Bearly Arts Glue and then to the card. My greeting is also from the Concord & 9th Bold Butterflies Stamp Set and is stamped in Concord & 9th Peacock Ink. It’s then adhered to the card with Foam Tape.

I had a piece of watercolor patterned paper in my stash and I used the Pinkfresh Mini Slimline Envelope Die to create my envelope for the card. A nice bright cheery Birthday card that my friend Sue loved!

Thank you for coming by to check in with me today! I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your Wednesday!
