Butterflies or hummingbirds for Seize the Birthday

 


Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and our wonderful leader Nancy has chosen butterflies or hummingbirds as the theme.


Of course you can always play along with our anything goes option as long as it's for a birthday.

My team mates and our guest Deepti have some wonderful inspiration for you, so hope to see you in the gallery.

I've been making glitter paste cards for a 21st birthday in purples and blues and had a reject piece sitting on my table. I thought I'd see how it would die cut and was pretty happy with the result. I traced around the butterfly die to fussy cut a vellum layer too.

Here's a closer look at the sparkle.

And here's the stencil it was cut from, Funky Fossil brand but not sure of the name.


The sentiment was snipped from the Birthday cursive script circle.
I love the font on this die but didn't want the circle part for this card. I inked it with versamark and clear embossed it for some shine.

I'm linking up to these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday, wild and wonderful. My take is wild colours!


Allsorts, something beginning with B...Butterfly!

Supplies
Dies: Crafts 4 U stitched rectangle; Memory Box birthday cursive script circle; Sizzix scribbly butterflies.
Other: Bo Bunny glitter paste; Funky Fossil stencil; versamark ink & clear ep; happy sticker; vellum.

Thanks for visiting,
