Hello there chaps and chapettes!
Today is my colleagues birthday - yipee!! She started at work the same time as me a few weeks ago so we're fellow newbies ;)
Now, I know she LOVES owls...I mean LOVES owls. Unfortunately for her I don't have anything owl-related, but I kept the animal theme and hopefully she'll like her card anyway :)
This card is for The Card Concept challenge #7 too, where the theme is - Butterfly. I'm really not sure which category my card falls into this time> Maybe Clean and Simple, maybe Clean and Layered, maybe even Clean and Graphic?! Ok, so the graphic one might be pushing it a bit!
It's also kind of based on the CAS(E) This Sketch layout from last week (#70) - I really liked it!
I finally own a butterfly stamp!! Woohoo!! I got this one in the awesome set that came with the last issue of Get Stamping magazine - it's beautiful!! I heat embossed it in WOW! Ebony powder and then used Distress Inks to blend the colours, I think they're kinda pretty ;) I also used some new-to-me WOW! embossing powder for the sentiment - it's Calypso glitter powder and it is STUNNING!! It has a lovely sparkle in real life and I'm loving it!!
So this is happy birthday to Jade, I hope you have a great day!! :)
Thanks for stopping by y'all! ;)
