Card Concept Challenge #61

Hello my stampy friends!!! Welcome to another

This time I fell in love with the pink & mint green colors of our inspiration board!

 I made a birthday card for a very good friend of mine. 

She loves butterflies, so I started looking through my stamps and came across one of my favorites from Stampin Up...Watercolor Wings. I stamped two different butterflies with Distress inks and fussy cut them out.  Next, I die cut a vellum butterfly with the SU Butterflies Thinlits dies. I layered the butterflies together to make one big,beautiful butterfly!

 I used a newer favorite Stampin Up set...Swirly Bird for the background panel. I stamped and heat embossed the swirls with silver embossing powder.

I hope we have inspired you to join us here at
