Happy Birthday!!

Happy Friday eve'!! Finally hoping things have settled down here in my neck of the woods and will be able to spend a little more time creating!!

I did get a chance to stamp this weekend and this is one of the cards I created.

 I used Altenew's Painted Butterflies. Stamped the images onto watercolor cardstock, heat embossed with silver, and watercolored with SU's crumbcake. Repeated the process for two of the images and "fussy" cut to pop on top for a little dimension. The sentiment is from Altenew's Label Love. Misted and flicked a little with Heidi Swapp's Tinsel Color Shine.

Played with the colors for the Curtain Call challenge... no winter scene.. this southern girl is dreaming of sun and flip flops :)

I also played in Darnell's NBUS challenge (never been used schtuff)- golly I could probably do this for weeks with everything I have bought in the last few months and no time to play!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

I love the crumb cake color on this card, Vickie, and those stylized butterflies are gorgeous outlined in silver! What a wonderful design idea!! Thank you so much for joining in my NBUS Challenge! It sounds like you have a Mt. NBUS at your place, too. At least you have the excuse that you haven't had time to create! Sadly, I'm just a product pig and yet, and yet, there are at least a dozen fairly new stamp companies that I haven't even bought from!! Hugs, Darnell
