Another Butterfly Birthday card

I don’t dare count how many birthday cards I have made featuring butterflies; I know there are many. My elder daughter turned 18 today and this is the card we gave her.

This is a very familiar layout from me; the little variation is that I brayered the background this time instead of sponging. The background flowers were repeatedly stamped to get the variation of dark and pale.

Thank you for the kind comments you left hear while I was away. I thoroughly enjoyed my week by the lake and then had fun catching up on the comments when I returned. Thanks to everyone who participated in my last OLW challenge; I haven’t caught up on commenting yet but I will visit all your submissions before my turn comes around again!


Stamps: Flower among Flowers, To You…, Social Butterfly (PB)
Ink: Memento Teal Zeal & Versafine Onyx Black (Tsukineko)
