Happy Birthday - Skipping Stones Designs

Hi there!

How has your week been going??? It's getting closer to the weekend and we have a busy, but fun one coming up!

I started this card by stamping a background from Skipping Stones Designs Timeless Textures in Stick Candy Green by Jenni Bowlin ink and cutting into a square followed by distressing the edges and adhering to the Kraft card base.

A length of pink crochet trim was added slightly overlapping the hand stamped background.  Some green baker's twine was horizontally wrapped several times over the top of the crochet trim and tied off in a bow. The Happy Birthday sentiment from Skipping Stones Grunge Set was stamped in Momento Rich Cocoa ink to the lower right corner of my card.
The musical background from Timeless Textures provided the stage for the two glittered butterflies from Healing Wings which have also had their edges slightly distressed and their wings bent upward. For a finishing touch, some white craft paint has been added to the kraft card base.

I found inspiration for my card from Skipping Stones Designs Sketch Challenge.

I found my color inspiration from Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge.
DYSU: Bling or Glitter

I'm also excited to share that this card was a Top 3 Challenge Winner at Inspired By Stamping Inspirational Challenge.
 

Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my latest card and news with you! Have a TeRrIfIc Day!
