Less is More Challenge - Week 125 Happy Birthday

It is time for another challenge at Less is More and this week it is to make a birthday card for Jen who is one of the designers.  She comes up with fantastic designs week after week and is a great inspiration to us all.

Fortunately for me Jen likes butterflies and this is what I came up with . . .

Another 'Happy Birthday'

Supplies: Clearly Besotted Stamps

Stamps - 'Leafy Accents',  'Butterfly Wishes Additions','Framed Sentiments'

Sentiment - 'Honeycomb'
Dies - 'Butterfly Wishes Die Collection'
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - 'Pinking Stitch'

First of all I masked off sections at the bottom of the card to make a border with Versa Magic chalk ink 'Mango Madness' and Brilliance 'Pearlescent Purple'.

The leaves are stamped in Momento 'Bamboo Leaves'.  The tiny flowers are from 'Framed Sentiments' and they are stamped in 'Pearlescent Purple'.  The large butterfly was die cut and stamped with one of the matching stamps.

The card was finished off with the 'Pinking Stitch' embossing folder. I took a bit of a risk leaving this until the end but it all worked out in the end!

Well that is all for now.

Thank you for visiting.
