Pink Butterflies Birthday

Hello friends!  It's time for a new Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers!  Pam is hosting tonight and she has chosen Pink Pirouette, Basic Black and White for this weeks colors. The dessert option is to use vellum, which I completely forgot about, so no dessert for me this week!

I'm also entering my card in the "Anything Goes" challenges at Seize the Birthday and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

I kept debating about what I wanted to create with the Color Challenge colors and finally decided to make something fun by using a Butterflies stencil to create some pink butterflies with embossing paste.  I added several drops of Pink Pirouette ink from a reinker and then dumped a large amount of Dazzling Diamonds glitter in the mix before spreading over the stencil.  I love how the butterflies turned out, with lots of sparkle!

I let the embossing paste dry over night, trimmed down the panel and layered it on a slightly larger piece of Pink Pirouette card stock, then added the sentiment.  A strip of patterned paper was adhered to the card base, then the butterfly panel was popped up with foam tape.  Of course a few sequins were added to complete the look!

Thanks so much for visiting, it's always so appreciated!  I've added links to all the challenges so be sure to head over and check them out.  I hope you'll be able to join us at the SCS Color Challenge this week!
