Birthday Butterfly


Here's a card that was fun to make, complete with matching envelope and bookmark. The stamp I used was from Stampin' Up years ago and still in my stash. I cut off the antennae from the image and replaced it with purple wire. The wings are painted with Twinkling H2O's to give them a shimmer. The dp is from Michael's and is what I used for the coordinating envelope, using The Enveloper. I also used a strip on the bookmark mounted on purple cardstock with another piece of the yellow ribbon.

Not bad for someone who got konked on the head last week... (See previous post.)
