BDay card for friend

Here is a card I made for my friend Jane for her birthday. She is a fellow card maker and loves butterflies. Her butterfly cards are always awesome because she uses mica powders and pearl ex on the paper she crafts them with.

There's a lot of shiny stuff on this card. I'm not sure you can tell from my photo even when you click on the picture to enlarge it. I couldn't seem to get the right angle to capture all the glitter and shine when I took my picture. The layout for this card is the one from week 89 over at Mojo Monday. I know I will be using this layout a lot. I love it for bigger cards.

Here are the card details:

Both of the butterflies are embossed with Versamark Dazzle and clear embossing powder. I stamped 2 of the bigger butterflies and layered them for dimension. My DP is DCWV Petite Purple Posies and is a glittered paper. I also used SU appricot appeal, kiwi kiss and baja blue and white from my cardstock stash. The big butterfly stamp is from Putting on the Ritz @ The sentiment and corner stamps are from an acrylic set I have that has somehow lost it's packaging so I don't know the maker. I stamped both with kiwi kiss and then stamped over that with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I cut out the sentiment and popped it on a piece of baja blue with dimensionals. I used a CB embossing folder to give some texture to the baja blue and the appricot appeal strip on the bottom of the card. The circles were punched with various punches from my huge collection of punches. I sure hope she likes it.
