A Birthday Butterfly

Combining three different card challenges, I came up with this bright and colourful card!

Butterfly Card

This card is made up of a Whisper White cardstock base. The background behind the butterfly is made up of using Sponge Daubers on my masked out circles (used 1-1/2″ Circle Punch, 1″ Circle Punch and 1/2″ Circle Punch) with the colours: Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo and Lemon Lime Twist. The butterfly is made using the Butterfly Thinlits on Basic Black cardstock and Rhinestones placed on its body. The sentiment “Happy Birthday” is from the Number of Years stamp set. The line pattern to go around the corner at the bottom is made using a ruler and the thin end of the Basic Black marker.

Thanks for reading!
