Birthday Butterflies

Here is a card I created for my friend's birthday:

(sorry for the poor photograph!)

I created this using a crafty individuals stamp (CI-135), I really love these butterflies!  I used my brayer to colour in a square of card with my big and juicy soothing sunset inkpad.  I then stamped the butterfly stamp over the top.  On a fancy frame card blank I stamped and embossed in clear powder a musical score from inkylicious and brayered the same sunset colours over that and added in a black flourish around the edge of the card.  I added some black ribbon and a sentiment to finish.

I would like to enter my card in the crafty individuals 'summer ball' challenge as I feel butterflies are synonymous with summer and the colours I have used represent a lovely summery sunset!  Details of the challenge can be found HERE

I would also like to enter this card in the challenge over at Dream Valley which this time is 'things with wings' details of this challenge can be found HERE

I hope you all have a lovely evening!
