Happy Birthday

I am so happy to be able to share a card today.  I have been so busy the last couple weeks.  I will have a couple surprises to share in the coming weeks.  I can't wait to share with you all. 
I made a card last night while I was trying to cook dinner.  So by the time I finished it was dark.   I had to wait until this morning to photograph it and post my card.  I used the sketch at Get Sketchy to get me started.  It worked perfectly for what I had in mind.  I made that flower from a couple of flat mulberry paper flowers.  I sprayed them with Glimmer Mist and I twisted the center flower and cut off the end...put it inside the other flower and there you have a pretty 3D flower.  I need to try and make some from cardstock.  I think they might be a little stiffer.
 You like my glitter butterfly?  I love how it turned out.  I stamped my PTI butterfly in brown, then I  colored it with my Copics and covered in in my Martha Stewart glitter glue and used my Martha Stewart glitter in Crystal Fine.
 A couple weeks ago I won a cute stamp set and die from Lil Inker Designs.  Love the cute sentiments and adorable little flag die that matches.  No more trying to hand cut my flag/banners.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  I am off to make another card.
Heather
