FS124 Butterfly Birthday Wishes

It's Featured Stamper Sunday and this week the honour goes to Christy S!!! Congratulations Christy and enjoy your week!! I have chosen to case her Butterfly Wishes Again card, changing the colours, papers, moving the sentiment and adding some punch work. As soon as I saw this card I just knew that I wanted to get out my new Inkadinkado butterflies again!!!! I've also realised that this also qualifies for the Flutterby Wednesday Challenge too!!! :)
I started with a base of white layering with Kiwi Kiss (pierced), Riding Hood Red and some Bella Rose DSP. The middle square panel is Riding Hood Red (pierced) and the other side of the Bella Rose DSP. Through the middle is some white card punched with Fiskars embossing eyelet lace border punch and a strip of RHR. I've stamped the sentiment from Elegant Cheer in black. The circular panel has been cut out with circle nestabilities scallop for the Kiwi Kiss layer and straight edge for the white, which was then embossed using the Floral Screen embossing folder. The butterfly is from Inkadinkado's Gem Stone Insects, stamped in Real Red ink and popped up with pop dots. Finished off by adding a few Kaisercraft Snow pearls to the corners.
Stamps - Inkadinkado Gem Stone Insects, Elegant Cheer
Paper - White, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Bella Rose DSP
Ink - Real Red, Black
Accessories - Fiskars embossing eyelet lace border punch, snow pearls, floral screen EF, circle nestabilities, paper piercer, mat pack.
That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!! :)

LOL I chose the same card to CASE but then changed my mind... thought I should try to do a card without a butterfly this week... nice use of the colour combination again, like the punch work too!
