Happy Birthday to You

Hello Everyone,

How are you today?  The weather here has been fine and cooler.  A gorgeous day with lovely clear blue sky until later this afternoon when it clouded up.  Rain is expected but I haven't seen any signs yet except for those few clouds blowing in with the cooler breeze.

Today's card features the Another Great Year, which has this big Happy Birthday to you stamp in it.  I've embossed with gold powder and heat set it and used a watercolouring technique on the background.  I love the effect on the whisper white card, all finished with an Elegant Butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp set.  Let me show you the butterfly first.

I've stamped it with Stazon black ink onto Brush Gold card and layered it onto a second basic black punched butterfly for a shadow effect.

Here is the finished card.

The cardstock is Basic Black, Crisp Cantaloupe and Whisper White and the inks used were Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo.

Thanks for calling in to see my card today and feel free to leave a comment.  Would love to hear your feedback.
