Happy Birthday by Doreen

Hello to you all, I am back with another sample made from the new stamps that have been released for August  My card uses one of the stamps from  the "Thistle Butterfly"  stamp sheet which I have inked up and coloured Dusty Concord and Bundled Sage  Distress inks. I then inked around the edge  again with Dusty Concord and then matted this onto white card.......

My background was made by inking all over with Dusty Concord Distress ink and then over stamping with another one of the stamps from the sheet.  The butterfly has been inked up with the same colour too and cut out. All that was left to do was to assemble it all together and add the sentiment.xxx

  12. I love the purple distress ink you have used with this pretty thistle butterfly. The pretty white flowers and ribbon and the butterfly which has a lot of white together with the white mats give a good contrast on this lovely card. x

  13. I particularly like your use of the little roses to echo the green of the thistle heads & to highlight the white of your ribbon & that of your butterfly. The way your butterfly is placed is eye-catching with that antenna tucked behind the topper panel & the left corner of the wing framing the thistle head.
