Birthday Butterflies

Sending birthday wishes to my sister, Julie. She loves butterflies and the sketch at STAMPlorations works perfeclty. I also got to use the Trendy Butterflies that have sat uninked for a while. Thank goodness it is birthday time!!

I wanted to give this card a clean and contemporaty look. After stamping the graphic images, I colored a few of the graphics on the top and bottom. I wanted to make this colorful so I stamped the different butterflies in Abandoned Coral, Worn Lipstick, Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed DI. A leaf punch was used for the butterlies to gather.

  1. AWWWWWSOME! This is SOOOO cooooooolllllll! It had to have taken forever to do, too. I like the swath of butterflies!

  2. Jerrie - what great details on this awesome card - the butterflies are stamped in awesome colors!!! And those trendy squares at the top and bottom are really cool - and what a genius idea to border it all with a ruler stamp!!!! What a great card!! Hope you have a great weekend!!

  3. Lovin your card. Butterflies are one of my favorites. Great job.

  4. Such a beautiful card! Love the butterflies and the colors!
    Thanks so much for playing along with us at Seize the Birthday!

  5. I really adore this card! I thought the layout itself was so clever! I like that it has geometric elements and structured elements (like the ruler) along side of those beautiful flowing flying butterflies. Genius! And I loved how they are flying in a half-circle shape. I've never seen anything quite like this before and really take my hat off (if I was actually wearing one) to your creativity here. You have a great sense of layering things in a stunning way. Thank you so much for sharing this with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  6. I love this. The geometric stamping with the touches of colour is so striking and the butterflies in the arc give a lovely sense of movement. Fab card Jerrie. Hugz
