Butterfly Birthday

Hello Everyone!!  The other day I was playing with the Butterflies and Blossoms new release by Flourishes and I had coloured a few of the images - today I decided to use a couple of the pieces that I hadn't used the first time!  :)  Makes for a quick card when you have pre-coloured images just waiting for you!!

I started with a base of green bazzill and layered with Very Vanilla and then used some Basic Grey Cappella DP.  Across this I added two pieces of dark ivory satin ribbon and knotted the bottom one.  I cut out the Clematis flowers with Large Square Nestabilities and stamped the sentiment from Tag Lines in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I then cut a piece of vanilla and pieced around the edges and finally framed it with green cut with Lacey Square Nestabilities.  The butterfly was cut out and popped up on foam tape.  Both the flower and the butterfly were coloured with Copics (Clematis - 0, BV00, BV02, BV04, YG11, YG13, YG17; Butterfly - YR00, YR02, YR07, YR24, B00).  To finish I added a couple of Kaisercraft Blush Pearls to the top corner.

Stamps - Butterflies and Blossoms, Tag Lines (Flourishes)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Green Bazzill, Very Vanilla, Basic Grey Cappella DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Large Square and Lacey Square Nestabilities, Paper Piercer and Mat Pack, Ivory Satin Ribbon, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)

What a lovely card. I'm needing some birthday cards and this will provide some good inspiration. Thanks for including the Copics you used. It is helping me develop my coloring skills and also helps me decide what colors I need to buy next. All your work is beautiful.
