This birthday card was created based on PTI's Make It Monday #108: Inked Backgrounds shown by Heather Nichols on Nichole Heady's blog. My card base is PTI's Simply Chartreuse. After stamping two sizes of butterflies from PTI's Beautiful Butterflies stamp set using VersaMark, I heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. Using a sponge dauber, I applied several inks in a circular motion until I got the look I wanted. Then I wiped the ink of the embossed butterflies. This was applied to my card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.
My sentiment from Boutique Borders: Birthday was stamped using Memento black ink on vellum cardstock creating a flag banner. To finish it off, I added the black/white twine and tied a bow.
