SP & Company Color Challenge #144 - using the following colors:
SP & Company Trends Challenge #10 - using negative space.
My Creative Time Designer Challenge - Bling It Up
The background paper is from Echo Park Beautiful Life. It had all the colors that I needed for the color challenge. The base of the card is red although it's hard to tell from the picture. I cut out a scallop from the middle of the paper using my Spellbinders die (thus giving me the negative space).
The Happy Birthday and the heart come from SP & Company's Round Sentiments I stamp set. The banner is from SP & Company's Stitchery Doo Banners set. Kelly was spelled using SP & Company's Tiny Build A Banner set.
The butterflies were punched using Stampin' Up punches and stamped with the Stampin' Up Papillon Potpourri. I've never seen a red butterfly but I'm sure there's one out there somewhere is this great big world! I blinged up the flower centers using Stickles and put rhinestones on the butterflies.
On the inside of the card I used SP & Company's Bold Birthday Sentiments.
This will be the first card that I have made for my new daughter-in-law. I hope she enjoys it.
Here's a close up of the center and a butterfly.
And finally the inside of the card.
