Bold Birthday Butterfly

Hello hello!

I have a delightful card to share with you today. It features some of my favorite things: butterflies, glitter, and some technique-y goodness!


First up – this is my entry for the latest Compendium of Curiousities 3 Challenge to use the Distress Glitter Technique. In particular I used the technique on the pretty butterfly die cut. Oh glittery yumminess. I highly recommend getting a copy of Tim’s book and playing along. There are some ah-mazing prizes (this week’s sponsor is the Funkie Junkie Boutique) and well, it is just all around good fun.

Talking about techniques, see that big black heart? I used a the Large Heart Stencil and Black Embossing Paste from the Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi line to add the heart to some off-white cardstock. I love the texture it adds.


I don’t usually double up on challenges on a single card but I also made this card for the Inspiration Emporium challenge this month: to celebrate. It doesn’t get much easier than that! I went with a birthday theme for my card and used a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn – Birthday Tags stamp set. Again, I highly recommend playing along. Still plenty of time and there is a great prize, $50 to spend in the Inspiration Emporium store. You can get all the details HERE.


That is it for me today. Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend!
