A Seize the Birthday Card



I took a week off from blogging while I was sick and I need to be retrained! It was after 11:00 last night before I realized I hadn’t posted my card but it was off to bed instead of posting. Today I thought I would post a card I made for the challenge at Seize the Birthday blog.



I love the different shades of orange on this card. It all started by die cutting the large fancy rectangle from a Spellbinder’s die and stamping on the butterfly (Inkadinkado stamp) and embossing it in black. The openings on the butterfly’s wings were coloured with Tombow markers and then I added some colour to the trail. It was okay but needed more bling so I added some clear gems here and there on the trail and a large oval pearl for the butterfly body. Not sure what company the sentiment came from but it was stamped and embossed as well. It needed something along the side so I die cut the scalloped edge and then the top one and glued them to the left side. I was going to add a bow but decided I liked it just the way it was and quit. Sometimes more is just too much!

That’s all for a Thursday. The dreaded virus or what ever it is I have refuses to leave completely but is getting a bit better each day.

Cheers
Violet
