Butterfly Birthday

So i needed a birthday card for a friend. Something a little collagey, purple and maybe a little shabby chic. I had some lovely diecuts and papers from K&Company - yeah that'll work. Needed to pull it together so a little ink (to a flourishy stamp). ok.
Then I wanted to use a bit of a Noteblock stamp from Purple Onion Designs - the "make a wish" part. Oh and I wanted to stamp that Make a Wish on a piece of acetate so I wouldn't be covering up all the pretty paper underneath. Eek - all that means "masking". Well, she IS a special friend LOL. I don't mask for just anyone.  In retrospect I shoulda found a larger piece of acetate so it covered the entire bottom half but I'm ok with it. Oh yes, I even pulled out my sewing machine and did a little stitching.

This is stunning!! Love the pretty lilac paper and the butterfly works so perfectly. I think the recipient will totally love it!

Gorgeous! So clever of you to think to use the acetate. I have a drawer full of the stuff...thanks for the reminder to dust it off and use it. I love this beautiful card, Tracy.
