Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and JoAnn has chosen green and white as the theme.
Of course you can always play along with our anything goes theme, as long as it's for a birthday.
The design team and our party guest have some wonderful inspiration for you, so hope to see you in the gallery.
I'm casing a card I made a few years ago when I tried the bokeh technique.
This background is darker than I wanted as I used peeled paint in the mix of greens, the white pigment ink seemed to disappear into it!
The butterfly was stamped, fussycut and coloured with Inktense pencils.
I'm linking up to these challenges:
I've added some gems to the butterfly body for some sparkle and shine.
Bizzy Bec's Store Challenge, anything goes
