Birthday Butterflies

 Hello and welcome crafty friends!
I'm popping in (at the last minute) with
a card I made for a couple challenges:

(This post contains affiliate links, at no additional cost to you!)

I used the Shower of Flutters stencil and blended three shades of
magenta from bottom left to almost top right, leaving some
white space at the corner. Using images from the
Trendy Butterflies stamp set, I randomly stamped over the
outlines of some of the butterflies. I placed the stencil back over
the images and splattered (too much!) black paint over the panel.
I trimmed the panel using the Crazy Double Running Stitch die
in the largest size. I then die cut twice, the Happy Birthday from
the Everyday Sentiments die set, stacked and glued to the card.

This card is much more vibrant in real life, but the day I
took the pictures, it was very overcast. Ugh!
Well, that's it for now. Thank you for
visiting, and I hope that you have a great
rest of your day!
