Beautiful Birthday Butterfly

Hello friends and happy Friday!
I'm just popping in with a card I made with some NBUS.
Mainly, the cover plate:

here's the inside:

I adhered some Stick It onto the back side of the black card stock before die cutting it.
(So glad I finally remembered to do that step first. LOL!)
After adhering that to my card base, I stamped and heat embossed the
sentiment in copper. To help make the butterfly stand out, I used a mostly dry
water brush and some copper ink that I smooshed onto my craft mat
and carefully went over the outline. Another sentiment stamped in
the same copper ink finishes the inside.

That's all for now. I'm still in a crafting mood so I may try
this again but with different inks. LOL!
Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a great day!
