ANOTHER GREAT SAVE
This card came out horrible, believe it or not. The "Happy" was originally the same paper as the background, but it didn't show up at all; so I had to fix it.
After dusting the word with anti-static powder, I went over the whole word with a Versamark marker. Then I sprinkled it with gold ep and repeated the process 3 times. Next, I gold embossed the "birthday" label and used glue dots to hold it in place.
To fill the huge expanse of nothingness above the words, I gold embossed the butterfly which was in my stash and added the black gems. It seems to have filled the space perfectly.
...and to think this card was headed for the trash (almost!)
