birthday card

happy friday :) heres a birthday card i made.
im entering it into a couple of challenges.
thekraftjournal~CAS
wordartwednesday~anything goes
DLArt~december linky party/anything goes
thepinkelephant~make it girly
sisterhoodofcrafters~embossing
be sure to check them all out im sure theyd just love if you played along with them too :)


i used my cuttelbug for the embossed butterfly. i added some homemade glitzy spritz (spun sugar) some ink and pearls.oopsie theyre a little wonky..i fixed them since :)
heres another embossing technique. you stamp with a light color ( i used SU white) then get a darker color ( i used ranger ink/coffee) and slightly off your stamping. i used my stamp a mah jig when i do this it makes it way easier when using wood stamp.this one is from SU.pretty nifty eh :)
i used another SU stamp for these sweet butterflies then sprayed the upper corner with the glitzyspritz .
 thanks a million for visiting today your sweet comments always make me smile thank you for that too :) happy crafting! xxxshelly
