Happy Butterfly


Hello!  I created this card by casing the designer at Happy Little Stampers Case The Designer Challenge.   I pretty much used the same layout and theme but changed the stamps and colors. I used GKD Stamps from Elegant Flowers, Unforgettable, Tropical Flowers, and Hope Is Faith (butterfly) sets which I stamped with Versamark and embossed with White EP on Navy CS.  I decided to leave some of the loose EP to give the background a splattered effect.  Was that planned or by accident?  Only the card maker knows!  Added some interest to the flower centers with a Yellow Glaze pen.  I stamped and heat embossed the Butterfly on Yellow Vellum and fussy cut it.  I used a Cheery Lynn Die to cut Happy from the image layer and then inlaid the word cut from White CS.  By using just the word Happy on the front, I can complete the inside to use for Birthday or other occasion.

Challenges:
Happy Little Stampers:  Case The Designer Challenge. The card to CASE is by Melissa Lane and shown below.
Just Us Girls Challenge: #342 Word Week Butterfly.  My butterfly was heat embossed and fussy cut.
Stamp TV Mix It Up Monday: Picture Perfect Challenge-Use Cat's Picture as Inspiration.








Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa

Beautiful card, Theresa. I love how the butterfly is perched on the flowers. Very realistic. Thanks for sharing your card at Just Us Girls.

Your comment about the EP marks in the background is so funny to me, I must use that line when I'm embossing because I have bits floating round all over the place that melt in the wrong spot. So frustrating!! Your CASE of Melissa's card is beautiful and love the stamps you used too. So very glad you shared this with us at Happy Little Stampers!
