I just love how this birthday card came out, for my friend Clareene. Happy Birthday, until you see this one for real Monday.
I used a sewn in organza bow (from my tutorial in the March Papers and Pixels Magazine) on a third-cut card front die cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities, Imperial Gold Gold Labels Four (S5-159). I used the same die layered up using 2, 3, and 4 of this set. I used a SU stamp from the 25th Anniversary collection Best of Flowers. The butterflies are SU's darling Beautiful Wings Embosslits touched with star-gel pen. The pearl swirls are Recollections and the whole card is brushed with Tim Holtz Distress Markers, or Tim Holtz distressing inks. All but the Stampin Up products are available at Joan's Gardens.
