Beautiful Birthday

Hello and welcome back!  I've had a bit more fun playing with the new Beautiful Day stamp set, using it to create a birthday card with lots of vibrant colors.

The butterfly and leaves were stamped on Neenah Solar White card stock, colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut (naturally, I bought the dies separately and they arrived the day after I made this card LOL!).  After adhering to the die cut circle, the piece was set aside as I made the card base. 

The bright pink card stock was trimmed into two pieces, embossed, layered on the white card base, then the black and white striped patterned paper was added down the right side.  I used my Misti to make sure I stamped my sentiment straight, then the butterfly piece was added.  Shimmer was added to the butterfly, and finally sequins and Nuvo crystal drops in both white and bright pink.

I'm entering my card into the 4 challenges below linked below.  Be sure to head over there and enjoy all the beautiful inspiration!


As always, thanks for visiting!

Hey Stef, long time no "see"! :) Love this card with the wonderful bold pop of color. The striped black strip really offsets the sketch beautifully. Thank you for joining Sunday Stamps this week.
