Happy Birthday to me!

A perfect opportunity to make a girly-girl card!

This card uses the Large Swirl Butterfly from The Rubber Cafe. I stamped it on a piece of glossy cardstock that I had done the Smackin' Acetate Technique with. I used SU! reinkers for this technique rather than markers. I used Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Pretty In Pink. It fades out quite a bit when dry, but that is perfect for stamping the image on. I love the soft watercolored effect it gives.

I added some Mark Richard's Crystal Stickers to the butterfly for some added bling. Designer Paper is from BasicGrey's Euphoria Collection. The flourishes are a Sizzix Die I picked up from SU! I cut them in white cardstock and then added some white pearl glitter for some added dimension and bling!

And a bit of fun news that I'll share today! I'm happy to have the opportunity to represent The Rubber Cafe as a Design Team Member for another term! I look forward to working with their original stamps! Thank you Melissa, for the opportunity!

Is the 27th really your birthday? It's my birthday too! I didn't think to make a card for myself. I don't think I would have liked it I'm too picky about my own work. lol

Love the bling and glitter to your card. So beautiful. The red white and blue challenge card is so cute. Is that a tongue or hamburger in his mouth?!!! LOL
