Happy birthday!

Hi friends!

Yes, it's been a bit since I've posted...but I have been busy playing in my room. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I'm popping in to share a card I made. It's from a Teresa Collins set I purchased recently and I just love it! Here's my card:

I LOVE how bold this stamped image is. I stamped it repeatedly with pigment ink so that I could heat emboss it. The heat embossing gave it such a nice shine when it was all done. I went ahead and colored in the center of the flowers using distress markers. Then, I stamped the sentiment but realized it was still missing something. I thought maybe the white spaces in between the flowers were what needed something extra so I free handed some green dots in clusters. That helped--but I still felt like something was missing. I then saw some epoxy stickers of butterflies. They're clear and I'd been waiting to use them. I grabbed a few of my Copic markers and began coloring in this butterfly. I think it added that touch I knew was missing. Gotta love those Copic markers! :)

I'll be entering the card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday Blog--anything goes!
