Happy Birthday Card

Good morning everyone. I though I would post my sister's birthday card before I got ready for church this morning. The baby in the family turns 18 tomorrow!! We aren't doing anything special as we have re booked our trip to Niagara Falls so we will be there all week. But it will be special for my sister because she loves Dolphins and has never seen one up close so the water shows will be great for her. Here is the card I made for her:

Here is what I used:
Wild Card Cartridge: card 5.5"
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder from Once Upon A Princess set, used on outside and inside of card, embossed butterflies onto dark purple and cut them out and added pop dots on front of card.
My Pink Stamper: Sweetest Cupcakes "Happy Birthday"
Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Milled Lavender on the inside of card to make the embossing pop
Stickles: Crystal for the dots on the embossing
Buttons from the dollar store, hot glue gun

My sisters favourite colour is purple and right know she loves butterflies so I knew what I wanted to do for her card. I have found that I really love embossing and then cutting out the embossed image and adding it on top of the embossed image to give it a 3D effect.

Sadly this will probably be my last post until I get back from holidays which won't be until August 6, but I will have alot of catching up to do!!

Hope everyone is having a great summer so far

God Bless
