Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Butterfly Brilliance Birthday

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! Our theme this month is “Happy Birthday”. Birthdays are probably the most common reason for giving out a card.
You may have arrived from Shirley Merker’s blog. She always has something exciting to share with us!

For my cards today, I have combined old and new. I want to use the retiring In Colours as much as possible before they are gone. Although they are not the exact colours, the blue and green butterflies in the Butterfly Bijou DSP work well with Pretty Peacock, and the pink co-ordinates with Rococo Rose. I used Textured Essentials stamp set for the background stamping.

I always decorate the inside of my cards (and envelopes to match too!). I stamped some butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp on the Rococo Rose card, and used the same Textured Essentials stamp as I used on the front of the card with some of the wings from the side of the Butterfly Bijou DSP on the Pretty Peacock card. The sentiment is from the Gorgeous Posies stamp set.
