It's your birthday...

Edit: This card was chosen as Top 3 at KL Stampin N Scrappin Challenge #38 - Embossing and it was featured at Flutterby Wednesdays!

This is my second post tonight, so scroll down for more!



I was really excited when I saw the Card Patterns sketch this week...I have had an idea in mind and it was the perfect week to try it out. I'm including this card in the following challenges:

Card Patterns Sketch #72 - great sketch!
KL Stampin N' Scrappin #38 - Dry embossing
Flutter by Wednesday # 112 - butterfly, fairy or angel
Sweet Stampin' Challenge #34 - Things with Wings
Cute Card Thursday # 120 - School's Out for Summer
The Shabby Tea Room # 17 - Let's Make an Impression - embossing

I started with some of my favorite papers from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie and embossed them with four different embossing folders - Sizzix Birthday and Cuttlebug's Divine Swirls, Swiss Dots and Floral Fantasy embossing folders to achieve a 'quilted' look. All the edges are inked with different inks including ColorBox Lime, Memento Rose Bud and A la Mode Aqua. I cut out the butterfly square from the same papers and stamped my sentiment from The Cat's Pajamas in Memento Tuxedo Black and set it on pop up dots for a little more dimension. The flowers are Prima and the brad is Urban Prairie. I used some cord from Crate Paper Katlin collection, a few Recollections pearls and bling, and a sparkly butterfly from Jolee's to finish it off! I love these summery colors, don't you!?!

I hope you like it!
